CAPOEIRA MALUNGOS

AMSTERDAM

CONTRA MESTRE IGOR

E ALUNOS

During the days of slavery in Brazil, a large part of the slave population was Kimbundu-speaking Africans. They used the term “malungu” meaning anyone who had travelled on the same ship together.

 

Gradually the term was extended to other close companions or friends (often travelling together). Our group consists of a large group of capoeira friends from all over Europe and Brazil – travelling together on a common quest to become better capoeristas. Our name refers to this journey and our openness towards new people and ideas.
