Day 302. berimbau

Berimbau is a brazilian instrument used in Capoeira, a brazilian martial art. Capoeira is was invented by the African slaves, so they would be prepare for fighting if necessary. They mixed music, dance and fight.
The history of it is more complex, but that is the idea.
The Berimbau sound is so unique, and so is Capoeira.
Here is a link of a video with my son playing Capoeira. He was around 19 months. And HERE is a link that shows the music and movements.
