EP 10 : Mestre Nenel

“I really hope to meet at least part of the interests of the reader! I do make a point to stress that I am not and do not want to be the holder of the truth. I simply come to share a little of what I conceived from the practical and theoretical lessons that I experienced with my father. I am open to any criticism whatsoever, since they are also part of my growth and maturation in this trajectory of rescue, preservation and perpetuation of my father’s legacy. One thing I hear a lot is that my father created Regional so that it could be developed, and that’s true! But what I barley see is peaple doing it with awareness of the principles that were fundamental to my father. In this book, I want to pinpoint these fundamental issues that should govern every and any proposal based on the philosophy of Capoeira Regional.”-Mestre Nenel

How To Match The Perfect Capoeira Bateria

In this video we detail exactly how each of our capoeira bateria (Gunga, Médio, and Violas) are matched up and prepared before we ship them out. The key is to string up multiple vergas and tune them before even picking out the cabaças. Once we find 3 matching vergas (with distinct sounds for each berimbau) we choose the appropriate cabaças and finalize the set. Every bateria is hand selected just for you. 🙂
