Notícias da Bahia, 1958
Wilson Rocha [1921-2005]
He was one of the greats. He was as no other in the art of this capoeira fight of dance. Nagé was one of the brave negroes of Bahia. He was famous on all the lands of the Bay area and on all the squares and streets of Bahia, on all the slopes and all the roads of the old city of All the Saints. For many years he was feared and respected by the best capoeiristas. [..] No champion, no leader had so many admirers. It was for this reason that so many people, thousands of locals flocked to the burial of the great capoeirista. [..] Nagé was a folk hero. [..]
