History and sentiment behind song

Capoeira's philosophy is that it comes from being the art of oppressed people: if you fight force with force (such as blocking a blow), the stronger force will always win. But if you avoid the blow, it doesn't matter how big or strong your opponent is. Agility is better than brute strength in capoeira.
