My Travel Story

by: Farah Solomon Start Date: Sep 15, 2016 - End Date: Nov 23, 2016
Hi All,

I am a 28 year old Capoeirista (one who practices Capoeira). In 2012, I was blessed to find myself in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Playing Capoeira with Grand Masters of the sport.

Capoeira is the beautiful Afro-Brazilian Martial Art, which incorporates dance, music and actrobatics. Capoeira's history was began with African slavery in Brazil.

I first came across Capoeira when i was a kid, and I watched "Only the Strong". Since then, I had always dreamed about moving with such grace, and rhythm and not to mention the glorious music; making it seem as thought the dancers were in a trance, controlled by the beat.

I have been a Capoeirista for almost 6 years. Capoeira encourages its practitioners to travel and learn. Because I have been to Brazil and played with the best, I now dream of playing my game and represent my Masters in other parts of the world.

I have been saving to go to back to Brazil and go on my Capoeira Pilgrimage to Bahia, Salvador. The birth place of this beautiful art.
Please support me on my adventure to help me grow and be the best Capoeirista I can be!!!

Thank you
