Eternal Egypt

The inspiration for this CD comes from our fascination and respect for Capoeira as a unique African / Brazilian art form.

The spirit of the music is driven by the Berimbau and Pandeiro and embodies the Capoeira traditions of fighting, music, dance, prayer and ritual.

Phil Thornton and Simon Williams
