Besouro Preto Flyer CAPOEIRA ON SCREEN! - BESOURO PRETO (BLACK BEETLE) (22-01-2011)

From the small town of Santo Amaro, located in Bahia's Reconcovo, comes the legend of a man steeped in African spiritual tradition, a man who took it upon himself to challenge those who abused their power.

Some say he was noble, others a troublemaker who disrespected the powers of authority.

Entrance Fee:
