Formado Zumbi (Mamadu) was born in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, and spent most of his childhood there until he moved to Lisbon. He first came into contact with the world of capoeira in 2008, a year after moving to London. His nickname “Zumbi” is the name of an ancient capoeira warrior, who fought against slavery. Mamadu enjoys playing the traditional instruments of capoeira, especially the atabaque drum. Mamadu has experience teaching all levels of adults, and has participated in a variety of performances and TV shows.
