About the project

The Angolan Roots of Capoeira. Transatlantic Links of a Globalised Performing Art


Initial seed-corn funding for the first trip to Angola in 2006 was provided by the University of Essex. The British Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) kindly provided  the core funding for the research project “The Angolan Roots of Capoeira. Transatlantic Links of a Globalised Martial Art” from 2010 to 2013.
A crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo supplied the funds to finish the edit of the documentary film in 2013 (See film credits).
The University of Essex Pro-Vice Chancellor’s Strategic Fund supported the web design of this section in 2020
