Weekly roda 27th March

Something a bit different for our weekly roda this week - some competitive capoeira from the 70s.

Dia 03/08 é dia do capoeirista.Hoje um ícone do país, a capoeira teve origem entre os escravos negros e foi criminalizada no Brasil a partir de 1890, por meio do artigo 402 do Código Penal, como atividade proibida. Símbolo de resistência cultural, a prática só foi descriminalizada ao final dos anos 30.Do acervo da Agência Nacional, assista a trecho do cinejornal Brasil Hoje 120, de 1975, com cenas de um campeonato de capoeira.
