Chinadaily Article on Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai

 chinadailyarticleJuly2014Martelo

 

看过巴西世界杯开幕式的小伙伴们一定对其中巴西战舞的表演片段并不陌生。作为一种16世纪由巴西的非裔移民反抗贵族和奴隶主的斗争衍发出来、介于艺术与武术之间的独特舞蹈,巴西战舞在过去的20几年里开始风靡全球,甚至在上海也赢得不少忠实粉丝。

 与其他运动不同的是,巴西战舞(又叫卡波耶拉)不只是体能的训练,它还包含了音乐,比如学习乐器和唱歌,以及对巴西文化的了解。

 A group of performers indelibly etched the excitement and color of the Brazilian art form capoeira into the minds of viewers around the world at the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup half a month ago.

 Capoeira originated from the slave communities on the east coast of Brazil, its popularity exploding internationally over the past 25 years or so, drawing some dedicated fans in Shanghai in the process.
