The art of making Cangas by the hand of Mestre Joaquim Ruivo

An art already in decline, where the learners are either few or nonexistent. The art of making the cangas is already present in the life of the master Joaquim Ruivo from very young. Jorge Bacelar is the host of another documentary "Things of Our Earth" where we will get to know much more of the famous cangas that served to prepare the animals that helped the most diverse tasks to the farmers, in the last century.
