Afro-Brazilian with Silvio de Oliveira

Class information
17th September — 10th December 2019
Running time: 60 minutes

Immerse yourself in the rhythms of Afro-Brazilian Folkloric dances including Frevo, Jongo, Maculele with a Capoeira basis.


I started learning Capoeira in 1990, and have been teaching for 23 years. I have always been attracted to the folkloric roots of Capoeira so I play drums and the Berimbau to help my students learn the true roots of Capoeira from Africa. I am really excited to offer this new class to PDSW which will encorporate the lesser-known side of the folkloric dances, songs and rhythms that contribute to the Art of Capoeira. These dances Jongo, Maculele, Samba and Frevo have roots in African dance and are accompanied by songs in the Portuguese language which I like to share with my students.
