1st Capoeira event of Professor Rouxinol - Aldeia Capoeira

During the past Pentecost weekend from 21st to 24th of May Professor Rouxinol of the Rotterdam based ALDEIA Capoeira group organised his 1st capoeira event. Rouxinol had reasons to give this event a different focus than is common at capoeira batizados, which he described on the Facebook event:
"Since I have a small amount of students, the main focus will not be on the Batizado and Troca de Cordas, (Even though some higher graduations will be given) but on workshops and capoeira in the Netherlands and it's integration over time.
Therefore I am inviting capoeira teachers of different groups and styles whom I have known for years as I find the diversity of styles enriching."

Dutch Culture rondom bezoek minister Bussemaker aan Brazilië

Tijdens het werkbezoek van minister Bussemaker van 10 tot 15 augustus aan Rio de Janeiro en São Paulo organiseert DutchCulture in samenwerking met (lokale) partners een stevig cultureel programma. Aanleiding vormt de groeiende vraag vanuit Brazilië naar expertise van Nederlandse creatieven op het gebied van onder meer cultuur – en museummanagement, herbestemming en stadsontwikkeling, (social) design. Andersom kan de Nederlandse sector profiteren van de unieke Braziliaanse aanpak van cultuurparticipatie.

In Brazilië is alles de schuld van de Arbeiderspartij

De kosten van het levensonderhoud nemen toe in Brazilië, en daarmee ook de onvrede. President Dilma Rousseff en haar Arbeiderspartij zijn de kop van Jut.

Holambra

In preview of the tour of Fanfarra Amigos de Holambra (Fanfare ‘Friends of Holambra’) through the Netherlands planned for this April, we’re publishing this article previously released in Dutch in our printed magazine, edition number 40, June 2011.
The whole of Brazil cried when the Divine Canaries lost to Holland in the quarter finals of the World Cup on 3 July 2010. The whole of Brazil? Correction: one small village bravely resisted the wave of grief and celebrated the defeat as a victory. Its streets filled with people in orange strip or in Dutch traditional costume. It celebrated the Dutch victory with sauerkraut and sausage.
