Capoeira goes Crowd Funding
The Essex University based project The Angolan Roots of Capoeira: Transatlantic links of a Globalised Performing Art has started a crowd funding campaign to raise money for the completion of the feature-length documentary film. It runs until 17th January 2013. Together with the ethnomusicologist Christine Dettmann, the interdisciplinary team visited Angola twice, focusing on combat games and musical instruments which are said to have ancestral links to the Afro-Brazilian martial art capoeira.
