Born in Africa, abducted to Brazil, raised as a warrior, destined for greatness. Based on the true story of Mestre Benedito, one of the innovators of the unique and beautiful martial art forms called Capoeira, The Mysterious One of Kapwera Engolo celebrates the life of a young man named Besege taken from his home and sold into slavery in the New World. Swiftly escaping to a multi-racial community of freedom fighters, Besege survives to witness turbulent times, including the birth of capoeira from a mix of African and native Brazilian arts, the abolition of slavery in Brazil, and the rise of Afro-Brazilian culture as an enduring force. Caught between worlds, living his life on the run from the authorities, and trapped within a system that enslaved and condemned him on the basis of his heritage, Besege rises to a position of respect and leadership as a warrior, a spiritual guide, and a teacher one whose legacy survives even today. As rich in action as it is in history and culture, The Mysterious One of Kapwera Engolo is a captivating and enlightening window to a very different place and timea world defined by adventure, mysticism, upheaval, and the eternal struggle to be free.
