Our name

berimbau sobre fons blau

Berimbau is a musical instrument originally from Africa which was integrated into the practice of Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art, to accompany the Capoeira movements of the participants in the circle.

For us it is an instrument that symbolises the movement and music that we want to be present in our project at all times.
