The ANGÁ Capoeira group was formed on December 16, 2017 by Mestre Maxuel and his students. It aims to support the development of members by creating new projects through a collective organization. It is present in Brazil, Chile, Guyana, France, the United States, Kuwait, England and Peru. The Angá Capoeira group is affiliated with ECCAGE Escola Cultural Capoeira Gerais and Capoeira Sul da Bahia. The word ‘ANGÁ comes from Tupi-Guarani, the most common indigenous language in Brazil, thus reminding us of Capoeira’s Brazilian roots. And an expression of pleasant surprise (oh good!) But it also means shelter and soul.
