Cordão De Ouro capoeira group

By Natasha North

The John F. Kennedy Library is bringing a bit of Brazil to Vallejo. A branch of the world-renowned Cordão De Ouro capoeira group will be performing this Saturday at 2:00. Capoeira is more than a martial art or dance style: it is a culture complete with a rich history, oral tradition, and musicality. All ages are invited to this exciting demonstration as the summer Read for the Win Challenge draws to a close.
