Capoeira

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=183149&cjsku=183149...
Originally the preserve of Afro-Brazilian slaves, the marginalized and the underclasses in Brazilian society, capoeira is now a mainstream sport, taught in Brazilian schools and practised by a range of social classes around the world. Some advocates now seek Olympic recognition for Capoeira. This apparent change in the meaning and purpose of Capeoira has led to conflicts between traditionalists, who view capoeira as their heritage descended from the maroons, a weapon to be used against the injustice and repression; and reformers, who wish to see Capoeira develop as an international sport. Capoeira: The History of Afro-Brazilian Martial Art explores Capoeira as a field of confrontation where the different struggles that divide Brazilian society are played out. It contains both the first comprehensive English language review of archive and contemporary literature relating to Capoeira, as well as the first scholarly account of Capoeira's history and development.

Capoeira

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=952535&cjsku=952535...
Capoeira is simultaneously a dance, a fight, and a game. Created by the Africans brought to Brazil as slaves beginning in 1500, capoeira was forbidden by law but survived underground. When open practice was allowed in the 1930s it soon became very popular. Capoeira came to America around 1975, and has become widely recognized by dancers and martial artists. The author discusses capoeira's evolution from Brazilian street play into a way of life. The philosophy of capoeira, and the practical and spiritual benefits of this philosophy, are also discussed. Instructions and exercises in intermediate and advanced skills take up where the author's previous book left off. The book includes 100 black-and-white photos and illustrations.

Bewusste Inkorporation in der Capoeira Angola

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=96352461&cjsku=96352461...
Diese Arbeit nutzt Konzepte aus dem Repertoire der Performanztheorien zur Analyse des afro-brasilianischen Kampftanzes Capoeira Angola. Ungewhnlich ist dabei die Rolle der Verfasserin, die sowohl als Ethnologin als auch als Lernende (und inzwischen Lehrende) der Capoeira in ihrer Person Innen- und Auensicht auf den Gegenstand verbindet. Sie versucht durch ihre 2008 durchgefhrte Feldforschung den Widerspruch zwischen klaren Regeln und definierten Kontexten einerseits und der Frderung von Improvisation, Reflexion und Handlungsbevollmchtigung andererseits aufzulsen. Um dieses Phnomen der Bewuten Inkorporation zu verstehen, bedient sie sich der Konzepte verschiedener Performanztheorien. Dabei befat sich die Arbeit mit der Capoeira in Europa, jedoch unter einem anderen Gesichtspunkt als die bisherige ethnologische Literatur. Es geht der Verfasserin weniger um den sozialen Kontext Barcelonas, als um das Verstehen der geistigen und krperlichen Techniken, durch die der Meister (Mestre China) seine Botschaft vermittelt.

The Berimbau

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2269685&cjsku=2269685...
The Brazilian berimbau , a musical bow, is most commonly associated with the energetic martial art/dance/game of capoeira . This study explores the berimbau's stature from the 1950s to the present in diverse musical genres including bossa nova, samba-reggae, MPB (Popular Brazilian Music), electronic dance music, Brazilian art music, and more. Berimbau music spans oral and recorded historical traditions, connects Latin America to Africa, juxtaposes the sacred and profane, and unites nationally constructed notions of Brazilian identity across seemingly impenetrable barriers. The Berimbau: Soul of Brazilian Music is the first work that considers the berimbau beyond the context of capoeira, and explores the bow's emergence as a national symbol. Throughout, this book engages and analyzes intersections of musical traditions in the Black Atlantic, North American popular music, and the rise of global jazz. This book is an accessible introduction to Brazilian music for musicians, Latin American scholars, capoeira practitioners, and other people who are interested in Brazil's music and culture.
