During the second half of January, we had a pleasure and a privilege to be able to train under the supervision of the legendary Mestranda Márcia “Cigarra” Treidler. Mestranda Márcia came to visit us and did three workshops with adults and two workshops with kids. We can all say that it was a great experience. Workshops were challenging, inspirational and most of all we all learned a lot.

 

Thank you Mestranda Márcia!!!

Muito obrigado Mestranda Márcia!!!!!

Vou lhe dizer o que me alegra
Numa roda, de capoeira
Quando eu começo a jogar
Três berimbaus
Gunga, médio e uma viola
Atabaque e o pandeiro
E dois cabras pra jogar
