Capoeira (Salvador)

In Salvador, the African influence in many cultural aspects of the city makes it the center of Afro-Brazilian culture. Developed by African descendants with native Brazilian influences, capoeira is a martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and berimbau music. Public squares and parks are popular places to watch an entertaining match that’s full of kicks, spins, cartwheels, flips and back-and-forth, foot-to-foot movement.
