|Maria ~Tutti Frutti~ and Sash ~Quebra Madeira~ started their journey in capoeira in St. Petersburg (Russia) in 2007, where they trained in local capoeira groups for 4 months.
In the end of 2007, they moved to the USA for graduate studies. As they did not find any capoeira schools around, in the end of 2008 Quebra and Tutti organized a local capoeira club in Bowling Green (Ohio), which later became an official part of Capoeira Mandinga worldwide school. The club's first meeting held on October 17, 2008 is considered the group's birthday.
As of today, they have trained capoeira for 4 years. They have been teaching capoeira to kids and adults for 3 years. Tutti and Quebra have attended various capoeira workshops and seminars both in the USA and abroad, within Capoeira Mandinga and its parent school, Capoeira Cordão de Ouro.
With the group, they have organized performances for city festivals and university events. Tutti and Quebra's background also includes graduate studies in physics, chemistry, biology, and 7 years of musical school education.
