Grupo Liberdade Batizado 2019

Please save the date for annual event of presenting new capoeiristas to the community. It would be the greatest honor if you could attend the 7th production of Grupo Liberdade de Capoeira’s 27th Annual Batizado and Troca de Cordel on Saturday May 18, 2019. At this event we will also promote in ranking and responsibility of other students of Grupo Liberdade de Capoeira. It is important to us that you celebrate and welcome our next generation into the Capoeira community. The seed was planted in 1987 when our group was founded by Mestre Cigano. In 1996, he planted an Afro – Brazilian seed here in the US. We are fruitful. Celebrate with us.You are our extended family and our doors welcome you and your students. We look forward to your attendance and support.

In solidarity,
Professora Amazonas
& the entire Grupo Liberdade de Capoeira Family
