History and sentiment behind song

This song makes a connection between capoeira and cor (color), race, or ethnicity - specifically, Brazilian ethnicity. Capoeira's roots - from the music to the movements - come from Africa, but it was only in Brazil that the art developed into the form that it exists today. Thus, capoeira reflects not only the African roots of the Brazilian people and culture, but also its long history of mixing with European and Indigenous influences.
