One of the main goals of Capoeira Angola is to maintain Capoeira as close to its roots as possible. Characterized by being strategic, with sneaking movements executed standing or near the floor, it values the traditions of malícia, malandragem and unpredictability: staples of the original Capoeira (sly and cunning moves, yet with respect). Its various manifestations of dance, game, theatre and music are linked to Afro-Brasilian rituals, characterised by Camdomblé. The players often perform low and tight movements towards their adversary as well as to the ground – this latter is often considered a form of celebrating the continuity and connection between body and nature / flesh and earth. This poster attempts to introduce another influence brought in by some of its more contemporary members: Hip Hop.
