Photographer's Note

The picture was taken in Switzerland during the 19th “Christmas Roda” of the Capoeira dos Alpes group in December this year.

Among the different professors, the professora Alegria from the group “Capoeira Prélaz”, near Lausanne was invited to participate at our gathering. She is playing with a berimbau and giving a lot of energy to our Roda with the rest of the players.

The idea of this picture was also to give a feminine touch to a sport that can be a mens world…

The group "Capoeira dos Alpes" was born in 2000 on the shores of Lake Géronde in Sierre. Over the years, the group has built up an association, and several courses have been set up. Today, the association has about thirty members, friendly and open.

The Capoeira dos Alpes group has succeeded in bringing a little bit of Brazilian culture to the heart of the Alps and in making the people of Valais discover this art.
