Bruno “Ginga” De Moura Floriano is is our resident drum maker by day and Treinel of Capoeira by night!

After surviving the sternest of 2 year apprenticeships with the Grand Master of drum makers Mady Keita, Bruno has flourished into an accomplished craftsman in his own right. A highly organized dude, he is patient and sensitive to the nuances of drum making. Ginga has been producing drums full time for 6 years now, predominantly crafting djembes and duns but also working with Persian, American Indian, South American and East African drums.

His journey in Capoeira Angola began in 1990, training with Mestre Celso da Rainha in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After years of study and practice, Ginga graduated as a Teacher of Capoeira and in 2007 he received the title of Treinel from Mestre Mano
