Mestre Jamaika founded the Volta Miúda Capoeira group in 2009, named after the region where his family comes from. Volta Miúda is the name of a quilombo, a community originating from a slave settlement. It lies in a small, rural corner of Bahia, Brazil, the birthplace of capoeira. This quilombo emerged from an area called Helvécia, founded in the late 1700’s.
