    Grupo Capoeira Brasil was founded in 1989 by Mestre Boneco, Mestre Paulinho Sabiá and Mestre Paulão Ceará. Grupo Capoeira Brasil has now spread internationally with over 1,300 groups and 400 instructors.
    Capoeira Brasil Zanzibar is led by Mestre Juruna Mestre Biriba and Mestre Popoban.  They have been training young Zanzibaris at the Dhow Countries Music Academy (DCMA), at Chukwani in Zanzibar Town as well as in Chwaka, on the East Coast.

    Capoeira is known for quick and complex moves, using power, speed, and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins, and highly mobile techniques. It is also great fun to participate, or even just to watch!
