Kilombo Novo Annual Retreat – Capoeira Angola
1 August , 2022 - 6 August , 2022
Kilombo Novo of Dorchester, MA brings an annual retreat and opportunity to experience the practice, energy, and commitment that this discipline of empowerment and liberation brings to community.
Kilombo Novo is a community of people that study the Afro-Brazilian martial art called Capoeira Angola. This family of community members and professionals seeks to reduce urban violence, trauma, and loss caused by poverty and living in disenfranchised neighborhoods who face racism, classism, access to deadly weapons and drugs, negative images in the media, and STD’s. The Capoeira Angola program provides discipline, tools for urban youth, and community to function as a healthy society physically, mentally, and spiritually through the philosophy, practice, and history of Capoeira Angola’s indigenous knowledge and wisdom.
