Here is the birthday song in Portuguese. We sing this song for all of the birthday rodas so get to know it. I included a pretty awesome video for you to sing along with. (No, really, this video is great!)

Parabéns pra você
Nesta data querida
Muitas felicidades
Muitos anos de vida!

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Posted in Photos, Updates! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2009 by testcapo

That’s right. We just finished up a great weekend of workshops with Prof. Indio. The training was solid and I hope that everyone was able to take a little something from his classes. I felt that the major themes of this workshop were twofold; 1) Staying grounded in all of your movements 2) relax and flow. For those of you in our class that were unable to make workshops not to worry. We will focus on these themes in the weeks to come.

Monday starts up our regular training schedule and I hope that everyone is there.

La Na Beira Do Cais (Lyrics)

Posted in Capoeira Songs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2009 by testcapo

Thank you Trovão for teaching the lyrics to La Na Beira Do Cais at last weekends Brunch and Berimbaus. Here is a great video with the lyrics. This Youtube video is done by Josie (Maracuja). Not sure what group this capoeirsta is from but I am sure impressed with their capoeira song collection.

La Na Beira Do Cais

De jogar com alegria
Me recordo o respeito, o sorisso no rosto
A maior energia

Lá na beira do Cais
Berimbau se ouvia

Eu chegava de branco
E minha roupa branca voltava limpinha, na beira do Cais

Na beira do Cais, berimbau se ouvia

A roda famosa na beira do Cais,
lá no cais da Bahia, na beira do Cais

Na beira do Cais, berimbau se ouvia

O Malandro jogava,
O sorisso no rosto, a major alegria, na beira do Cais

Na beira do Cais, berimbau se ouvia

A cobra picava,
O veneno da cobra não me atingia, na beira do Cais

Na beira do Cais, berimbau se ouvia
