Under the guidance of “Ver Venha Angola” (“Come to see Angola”), for five days, capoeira intensive workshops are open to anyone wishing to learn about capoeira, Angola, African percussion and afrobrazilian dance.

Workshops include trainings of capoeira, music lessons with typical instruments and African dance.
