Historic recordings of Mestre Waldemar Rodrigues da Paixão

”…The album ”Mestre Waldemar – Eu Cantei a Capoeira” contains recordings of the great master, performed in 1951 by american researcher Anthony Leeds.

It also contains recordings made in 1989, during a roda at Salvador (Bahia, Brazil) which celebrated Mestre Paulo dos Anjos’ birthday.

The CD was produced by members of the online community ”Mestre Pastinha”, and is intended to help Mestre Bigodinho, disciple of  Mestre Waldemar.

Price: R$15,00 (fifteen brazilian reais) + postal expenses
