That’s right! We got another one coming up soon! This event is where we practice music and have a little brunch pot luck as well. Students that take this class always leave with some good songs in their┬árepertoire and have a better understanding of how to play capoeira instruments. Here are the details:

Sunday, April 5th


Aceituno Arts Cooperative

2141 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94112


Brunch and Berimbaus will also be the Aceituno Arts chapters effort in fundraising for the encounter in August. So in the past, we let all of you who paid monthly fees to take this class for free but because we are fund raising, we are now asking that everybody pay.
We hope to see everyone there!
