Mestre Marcelo Angola, founded the Centro Cultural de Capoeira Angoleiros do Mar on the 5th March 1999, with its central base located at Barra Grande, on the island of Itaparica, Bahia, Brazil. He works with Capoeira Angola to preserve the values and traditional fundamentals of Capoeira Angola, both within and outside Brazil, giving priority always to the artistic and cultural aspects of the art form, without compromising its traditional characteristics. The voluntary work Marcelo started on the island of Itaparica over ten years ago continues today with the Childrens Project, ”Gingando no Mar,” a NGO Project which still has no official funding and is only kept alive because of the work of a few dedicated students of Mestre Marcelo.
