History and sentiment behind song

The term beira-mar means sea-shore and the terms Ioio and Iaia are how slaves would usually refer to their masters and their masters’ children. This song gives reference to the sea-shores that often held such beauty in the northern states of Brazil and the fact that they would often belong to the slave-masters and mistresses.
