Capoeira Chulas

Lyrics, Translations, Music Video and Song Meaning

Chulas are short songs, characterised by a short verse of a few lines sung by the person leading by the song, followed by a chorus that is usually one short line sung by the singer, to which the chorus responds with another short line. They are often sung after the louvação, before the corridos, sometimes by one of the jogadores crouching at the foot of the berimbau waiting to play.
