Pelourinho, Salvador - State of Bahia, 40020-060, Brazil
Catch an impromptu Capoeira performance!Strolling down the Pelourino, I came across two guys practicing the Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. What made this moment memorable in this lovely colonial city was that I stumbled upon these folks quite by accident one afternoon. I had heard about the Capoeira and was wondering how to catch a show so when I heard the strains of music and I saw the movements, I knew I was in luck! For a few brief moments I stopped and was mesmerized by the art form and the beats of the music as the sun embraced me with its warmth in the plaza that was largely devoid of tourists at that time.
