É Jogo Praticado Na Terra

Song Lyrics

Oi meu mano,

O que foi que tu viu la,

Eu vi Capoeira matando,

Tambem vi maculelę, Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


Sou discipulo que aprende,

Sou mestre que da liçăo,

Na roda de Capoeira,

Nunca dei um golpe em văo,

Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


e capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


Manuel dos Reis Machado,

Ele é fenômenal,

Ele é o Mestre Bimba,

Criador do Regional, Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


Capoeira é luta nossa,

Da era colonial,

Nasceu foi na Bahia,

Angola e Regional, Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


No dia que eu amenheço

Danado da minha vida

Planto cana descascada

Com seis dias tá nascida, Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador


Capoeira


É jogo praticado na terra de Săo Salvador

English translations

Hi my brother,

What did you see there,

I saw Capoeira killing,

I also saw maculelę, Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


I am a disciple who learns,

I'm a master of the lesson,

In the Capoeira roda,

I never hit in vain,

Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


and capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


Manuel dos Reis Machado,

It is phenomenal,

He is Mestre Bimba,

Creator of the Regional, Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


Capoeira is our fight,

From the colonial era,

It was born in Bahia,

Angola and Regional, Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


On the day I wake up

Damn my life

Peeled cane planting

With six days is born, Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


Capoeira


It is a game played in the land of São Salvador


History and sentiment behind song

The city of Salvador in the northeastern state of Bahia is one of Brazil's oldest cities, and was the country's first capital until being succeeded by Rio de Janeiro in 1763. It is best known for its Afro-Brazilian culture and cuisine, as it has the country's highest proportion of Brazilians of African descent.

Salvador is important in the history of capoeira. Although there is no certainty as to where, exactly, capoeira originated (the first written record of capoeira comes from Rio de Janeiro in 1789), Salvador is undeniably the birthplace of capoeira's modern forms, Capoeira Angola (preserved by Mestre Pastinha) and Capoeira Regional (developed by Mestre Bimba) - both these mestres were natives of Salvador.
