Made of Bolivian Rosewood. This asymmetrical design was inspired by the story of Capoeira.
Capoeira is a ritual dance that combines elements of acrobatics and evasion. It is known for its complex maneuvers and emphasis of flowing movement rather than fixed stances.
Capoeira was first a tradition practiced in Angola, Africa to channel ancestors and gain a connection to the afterlife. However, this tradition turned into a means of protection when Africans where taken to Brazil during the Atlantic slave trade.
Enslaved Africans would incorporate music and dance into Capoeira to disguise that they were actually practicing fighting techniques.
