Born almost 500 years ago between slaves communities forced to work on sugar cane plantations in Brazil, Capoeira is a sort of fighting masked like a dance, to lead on white owners who prohibited this practice.
Capoeira is a total effect self-defence martial art, expressed as a dance; athletes perform spectacular acrobatic exercises with back loops, kicks and punches without touching the other participants. This happens inside a circle (la roda) inside which people sing and play Birimbao (a typical chords brazilian instrument). The challange (called “game”) starts with this music.
