Festa Noite Brasileira!

Viva Brasilia... Qba was packed with people on Sat night for the Festa Noite Brasileira which was part of Bantus Capoeira Malaysia's 1st Annual Capoeira Festival . By the time we got there, they'd already started with the Maculelé. The percussions were frantic and the men in war paint n grass skirts were amusing *heh* but the dance wih the knives at the end of that set was kinda cool.. i thought they weren't using real knies till i saw sparks and all flying when they came into contact... pretty fast too. Owing to the fact that i am (relatively) short, i only managed to glimpse flashes of that performance :( . BUT i got front row seats at the roda later that evening which was great... this is a pic i took of em playing in the roda.
