Capoeira weaves fighting, music, dance, prayer and ritual into an urgent strategy by which people live, struggle, celebrate and survive together. In this book Bira Almeida - or Mestre Acordeon as he is respectfully called in Capoeira circles - documents his own tradition with both the panoramic eye of the historian and the passionate heart of the Capoeirista. He transports the reader from the dawn of New World history in Brazil to the streets of twentieth-century Bahia (the spiritual home of Capoeira) to the giant urban centers of North-America where Capoeira is now spreading in new lineages from the old masters. - The Saga of Capoeira - The Roots - The Growth - Contemporary Capoeira - The Color of the Sound - The Path - My Encounter with Mestre Bimba - The Challenge - The Making of a Master - In Motion - Disciplined Training
