Music

Maculele Kids

Children are introduced to music through different rhythmical art form as part of their capoeira training. These include:

  • Maculelê — an Afro Brazilian dance where dancers hit their sticks in rhythmically in a circle called roda.
  • Percussions — the pandeiro, the agogô, the caxixi, the atabaque, the reco-reco and the berimbau are essential instruments in capoeira and dance. Percussions are introduced to give students a sense of balance and rhythm.
  • Singing — songs are an integral part of capoeira as well. All songs are in Portuguese.
