Mestre Negão from São Paulo
Eduardo Rodrigues, well known in the Capoeira scene as Mestre Negão from São Paulo, has become one of the very important characters in Capoeira, mainly through his Capoeira event ‚Vadeia Samba’, but also with his high-grade artisanal instruments and his very kind personality. He constantly tries to connect capoeiristas from differnet styles and groups. He has his workshop in São Paulo - no more than a single room in a small house, this is where he makes his instruments.
His atabaques are of exstremely good quality and his artisanal skills create demanding and beautiful instruments with traditional rope tuning systems.
