WCF's CONDOLENCE. GRAND MASTER CAMISA ROXA DIEDs

One of the most famous names of the world capoeira history, Grand-Master of international capoeira group ABADA, Mr.Edvaldo Carneiro e Silva (Mestre Camisa Roxa) died on Thursday 18:04 PM at the age of 69. He lived a very meaningful life. He was born in 1944, at the Estiva farm, in the State of Bahia. He started to practice capoeira, for fun, at the age of 10, and was followed later by all his brothers. In the 1960's, he went to Salvador, to study at a high school. He then started training capoeira at Mestre Bimba's Academy, where he graduated and was considered the best student by his Mestre. Grand Master's nickname comes from the fact that he would always wear a purple shirt (camisa roxa) , which he really liked, at the capoeira rodas that he attended in Bahia. He also liked to play in the rodas of traditional capoeira at Mestre Pastinha's academy and at Mestres Waldemar and Traíra's academy, at Rua Pero Vaz, where he was much respected for his great knowledge of capoeira's fundaments and for his professional demeanor. Camisa Roxa thinks of capoeira as a whole, reconciling Reginal and Angola. "In reality, very few people understood Mestre Bimba real intentions", said Grão Mestre. "He wanted to a tall capoeira first, with his method, but with time, every person should learn how to play low", he concludes.
