Videos of the games played during the recording of the CD Movimento Novo launched

After the successful crowdfunding campaign last September of the Capoeira CD Movimento Novo the initiators are coming to the end of the realisation of this project.
It includes the weekly release of a total of 10 videos covering the Capoeira games that were played simultaneously with the recording of the songs.
Of course the posting of these video's will be on the video-channel of Movimento Novo's cofounder and main responsible for its video productions, Capoeirista and filmmaker Jorge 'Itapuã' Beiramar: Abeiramar.tv
The first video was posted this 1st of March on the renovated video-channel. Movimento Novo fans will have something to look forward to for each of the coming 9 weeks!
