Ajani and Shomari Healy of ‘Chibale', the drumming group comprising the children of Idakeda, had the rare privilege of training this past week with Capoeira Master Emerson from in Brazil.

The training took place during a week-long workshop series organized by Grupo Capoeira Senzala, a Capoeira training institute managed and directed by Professor Leon Carmichael of Trinidad and Tobago. Ajani, Shomari and Kayode are all members of the Senzala Institute.

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form, combining martial arts, music and dance. It is known internationally as ‘the fight-dance' and has gained prominence through films, comic books and video games.
