Skher Brown and the Dancing Warriors Ensemble

Dance

Artist Statement

Capoeira Angola is more than just a martial art. It is a cultural doorway into the world of others both like and different from us. It draws us in through dance, movement, music, song, and stories of distant lands.

Artist Bio

“Baba” Skher is one of less than 10 American-born artists in the United States who have reached his ranking in this African-Brazilian folk-art. As the director of the Dancing Warriors ensemble, he performs alongside fellow veteran artists who have traveled throughout Brazil, collectively presenting to thousands of adults and children.
