Program: ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco (ACSF) will present Spirit of Brazil: Elements of Sound, the third installment in ACSF’s highly acclaimed Spirit of Brazil concert series. Elements of Sound is an exploration of the organic sounds that make up the Afro-Brazilian art of Capoeira. The concert will bring Brazilian guest artists “Boa Voz,” the first professional capoeira singer and musician, and Instructor “Mobilia,” a well-known capoeirista and singer from Rio de Janeiro, together with ACSF’s high-flying performers and Artistic Director Mestranda Márcia Treidler’s original choreography to create an audio-visual exploration of capoeira’s many dimensions, a show that is both a demonstration of capoeira’s visual grace and a live concert of traditional Brazilian music and song. Proceeds will benefit The RAY (Reaching All Youth) Project, ACSF’s youth program providing free and reduced price capoeira classes, performance opportunities, youth leadership opportunities, artist training, and bi-annual health workshops to youth aged 5- 19 from low-income families.


Background: The mission of ABADA-Capoeira San Francisco (ACSF) is to preserve, develop, and share the art of capoeira with integrity, and to use capoeira to enrich disadvantaged communities and the lives of people from all backgrounds. ACSF offers professional instruction and performance of capoeira at its Mission based Brazilian Arts Center, and at over 30 sites throughout the Bay Area. Founded in 1991 by master capoeira artist Mestranda Márcia Treidler, ACSF seeks to inspire and empower people, especially youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, to realize their full potential as responsible, confident, productive citizens. By consistently seeking out new creative ways of exploring and sharing the dynamic aspects of the multi-faceted art of capoeira and related arts, ACSF remains a pioneering force in the preservation and development of Brazilian cultural arts.
