Nekoč in Danes Izvor besede “capoeira” je prav tako zavit v skrivnost kot izvor same umetnosti te veščine.  Na splošno obstajajo tri možne opredelitve in etimologije besede capoeira – in sicer tupi-guarani, portugalka in afriška.

Yaya & yoyo

Šepet sence: Iaiá & Ioiô V mnogoterih capoeira pesmih slišimo in pojemo Iaiá in Ioiô, včasih zapisanih tudi kot Yaya in Yoyo.

Spread the word

Not all of us were born with equal rights. We tend to take things for granted. Like being literate. Knowing to read and write wasn’t granted for some. Throughout the bloody history of Capoeira most of its practitioners were in the gutter. Slaves. Ex-slaves. Lover caste. Marginals. Unworthy. Thieves. Criminals. At least that was how […]
