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.
