Maculelê is one of the traditional Brazilian dances capoeiristas perform during batizado. It is a stick fighting dance that progresses to using facão, machetes. Here, I perform maculelê with my grupo, grass skirt and everything.
I had one day to learn the routine. Turns out, I was the replacement for the replacement, who sprained his ankle the day before the performance. Thank goodness I remember how to play maculelê!
