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.
