The first two pieces I found in Fukuoka (Hakata). I really like the music notes.
Not sure if the last one was intentional or sheer coincidence.
"When the music changes, so does the dance." — African proverb
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences, probably beginning in the 16th century.
Capoeira has a long and controversial history, since historical documentation in Brazil was very scarce in its colonial times. Evidences, studies and oral tradition leave little doubt about its Brazilian roots, but it is impossible to precisely identify the exact Brazilian region or time it began to take form.
Nowadays, Capoeira is a symbol of the Brazilian culture, symbol of the ethnic amalgam that characterizes Brazil, symbol of resistance to the oppression, Capoeira definitely changed its image and became a source of pride to Brazilian people. It is officially considered intangible cultural heritage of Brazil.
It’s better to work with people who are out there grinding trying to build something out of nothing than established executives who walk around with a smug sense of accomplishment. Specifically the ones that look down on the young creatives who’s ideas line their pockets even though they aint done shit, aint built shit and only got their job cuz they’re connected.
