History and sentiment behind song

In the 17th and 18th centuries, Mameluco was used to refer to organized bands of slave-hunters, also known as bandeirantes, who roamed the interior of South America from the Atlantic Ocean to the foothills of the Andes, and from Paraguay to the Orinoco river, invading Guarani-occupied areas in search of slaves.

A mulato (from muladi) was a person of simultaneous visible European and African descent.

The song references Cafuzo which is a term that refers to people of mixed African and Native American ancestry.
