Kids Portuguese Language Teasing Choir

  • Start times fluctuate from 2 to 3 pm Sundays for beginning participants
  • Additional times will be added as the need arises for age group specific practice
  • Choir will compete and perform at various festivals, and Capoeira centric events
  • We are meeting in a smaller location - this will change slightly based as more families come back, or resume
  • We have structure in place if the pandemic resumes
  • Recycling donation is preferred 
  • Other means of supporting the choir(s) is below in the link - for those wanting to donate traditionally
  • The focus is music, with movement introduced as a warmup before focusing on the choral aspect of the sports artform
  • Register by text, (503)449-9091 How many children, names, ages, your relationship to the child, best way to response to you and send you more information
  •  Capoeira is a music centric contact sport, even if your child is just singing or playing music there is a ever present chance that they could get hit when two other competitions miss one another or nudge each other out of the game circle
  • Warm ups are just that. However, they are designed to introduce the child to martial arts concepts. In a low intensity manner of your child chooses to play, we start of with no to minimal contact, but accidents do happen - this artform is based on horsing around with one another, and the choirs sing about how well the two players can handle it - So, all participants gaurdoans must sign a waiver - make us aware of the child's potential health concerns - so that we can take these into consideration

We look forward you your child or children joining us to sing their heart out, and perhaps eventually move around with us as well.


There are many events coming up in the er and fall -  that we need to get ready for- Starting sooner is better

Black Lives Matter - Links to what you can do

This is inherent in the nature of all forms of Capoeira.


The songs sing about simple fact that all people are equal no matter which philosophical way one tries to over complicate that with pedantic disection and psuedo science gone mainstream.


When one group is singled out and dehumanized for whatever reason it goes against this baseline mantra that should be able to go without saying.


When this isn't the case: We have an obligation to counter that dissection by any means necessary, if a peacefully lawful covenant cannot be reached across the diglossial semantics. 


The song in Capoeira: "Da Da Da no Nego, no Nego voce nao da..."  Speaks of Black Humans not being able to take part in the society to which they were born into.


The song in Capoeira:  " O Nega que vendei a e?"  is sung with the interrobang inherent in the question.  Meaning that; it doesn't mean anything if your products are good or bad.. the white world is calling it into question simply on the basis of the vendor being black, an exslave, forced into a life of poverty, excluded from resources, which is a line drawn on where they will be tolerated by the white majority of the time and tide of the time(s) sung about.


Much of Southern white Brazil still looks down on anyone playing Capoeira as people doing that 'dirty black street dance".


Our group is inclusive to everyone.  But, if you're against Black Lives being treated fairly, or feel that Native Americans should be thankful for White Genocide - because it brought them J-s-s.  Our group is not for you.


We love fiscal conservatives, we love fiscal liberals - all that stuff is up for debate.


What isn't up for debate is that coopting one thing or another - lying about one thing or another - such as stealing Hawai'in culture to promote a white instigated race war by using tiki torches and hawaiian shirts to send a visual coded message - among a growing list of other appropriations for the 'evil side of the force'. This is not acceptable.  


Sending out tear gas on peaceful protestors to agitate them into fighting for their lives or promoting an image of chaos just to have a photo op holding the book of the forgiveness meme in front of a forgiveness temple - is not acceptable - coopting religious ideals for political gain is corruption.  The same corruption of usery charged when upselling peoples sacrifices of lambs to a better model for G-d to accept is said to have led the Massiah to go on a one person riot themself. According to written legends in the memebase.


Modern European Americans need to carry out their lives in accordance with the notion of being forgiven of sins of past generations that are visited upon them and actively seek to undue the damage that has been at every turn.
