    M Sombra's commentary

    «[..] this photo was made two days after my event in March 1983. When they, the mestres João Pequeno, Canjiquinha, Papo Amarelo, Julio (Mestre Cobrinha Verde's son) came to my event, of the Capoeira Senzala de Santos Association. Taking them to São Paulo we went to the Cordão de Ouro Academy with mestres Gato, Joel, Brasília, Suassuna and Risadinha [Zambi]. Which made me to clarify... This time my friend mestre Boca Rica didn't come, it was another time. The mestre on the photo is Papo Amarelo.»
