ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco (ACSF) will present Spirit of Brazil: Danças dos Guerreiros, the fourth installment in ACSF?s highly acclaimed Spirit of Brazil concert series. Danças dos Guerreiros (Warrior Dances) Festival will explore the traditional Brazilian genres of capoeira, jongo, and maculel?. Unique to Brazil, these three folk dance and music forms are linked by their origin on slave plantations in Portuguese-colonized Brazil. ?Danças dos Guerreiros? will emphasize the shared African traditions that shape and define each of these traditional arts. As a specific study of art forms created under circumstances of extreme oppression, Danças dos Guerreiros will provide an inspiring view of art, empowerment, and expression created in the face of incomprehensible hardship. ?Danças dos Guerreiros? has particular significance because of its ability to demonstrate the message of resistance and resilience that has carried these art forms into the 21st century.
