José Santos Soares is a Brazilian that in the world of capoeira is known as Bom Cabelo. He started his work with capoeira in Rio de Janeiro in 2004. He used to teach children almost everyday until he moved to Finland in 2008. In Helsinki he started his own group for adults and teaches several kids’ groups weekly. Besides capoeira, he teaches forró and other Brazilian dances and rhythms.
Bom Cabelo loves capoeira just as much as he loves working with children. The mission of the association Tambor Vivo is to share the popular culture of Brazil with the Finns and also with Latin Americans living in Finland. For that purpose, Kolibrí is the perfect stage in a happy environment.
Come and meet our dear Bom Cabelo!
