Chamado De Angola

Song Lyrics

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Numa viagem pra África

Oi numa viagem pra África

O meu mestre esteve lá

Em busca dos fundamentos

Da nossa capoeira

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Vi falar do embondeiro

Que faz casa pra morar

Falar dos negros cuanhama

É uma tribo que tem lá

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


O dinheiro é o kuanza

O Qimbundo é pra falar

Capoeira vai crescendo

Bassula pra derrubar

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Canta Dionísio Rocha

Diferente no cantar

O povo diz pagimne

Pedindo paz pro lugar

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Muchima é coração

Que bate forte ao chegar

Parece que diz baixinho

Me leve um pouco pra lá

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Cabeçada é quitunga

Luanda é a capital

Atabaque é ningoma

Hungo vira berimbau

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


Negro nascido na terra

Não pode no chão pisar

Pode ser campo minado

A guerra ainda ta lá

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu


O tempo lá vai rolando

Quem manda em mim é Deus

Quando ele me abençoar

Eu vou lá te conhecer

Ô chama eu

Chama eu, chama eu

Chama eu, Angola chama eu

English translations

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


On a trip to Africa

Hi on a trip to Africa

My master was there

In search of the fundamentals

From our capoeira

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


I saw talking about the baobab

That makes home to live

Talking about blacks cuanhama

It is a tribe that has there

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Money is kuanza

Qimbundo is for talking

Capoeira grows

Bassula to take down

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Sings Dionísio Rocha

Different in singing

The people say pagimne

Asking for peace

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Muchima is heart

That hits hard when arriving

Looks like it says softly

Take me there a little

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Bridle and quitunga

Luanda is the capital

Atabaque is ningoma

Hungo becomes berimbau

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Black born on earth

Can't step on the floor

Can be minefield

The war is still there

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


Time goes on there

God is in charge of me

When he blesses me

I'm going to meet you

Call me

Call me, call me

Call me, Angola call me


History and sentiment behind song

Chamada means ‘call’ and can happen at any time during a roda where the rhythm angola is being played. It happens when one player, usually the more advanced one, calls his or her opponent to a dance-like ritual. The opponent then approaches the caller and meets him or her to walk side by side. After it both resume normal play.

While it may seem like a break time or a dance, the chamada is actually both a trap and a test, as the caller is just watching to see if the opponent will let his guard down so she can perform a takedown or a strike. It is a critical situation, because both players are vulnerable due to the close proximity and potential for a surprise attack. It’s also a tool for experienced practitioners and masters of the art to test a student’s awareness and demonstrate when the student left herself open to attack.
