Song Lyrics

Jogar capoeira de angola

Não é brincadeira

Menino vem ver lelê

Com a cabeça no chão

Vai saindo de aú

Completando rolê

Jogar capoeira de angola

Não é brincadeira

Menino vem ver lelê

Com a cabeça no chão

Vai saindo de aú

Completando role

Eu fui lá no cais da bahia

Jogar capoeira

Lembrei de pastinha e seu Aberrê*

lelê

Capoeira de angola

Não é brincadeira

menino vem ver

Jogar capoeira de angola

Não é brincadeira

Menino vem ver lelê

Com a cabeça no chão

Vai saindo de aú

Completando role

Porquinho sempre falou

Solte o corpo menino

Deixe de falar

Tem que ter sentimento

Para capoeira de angola jogar

Jogar capoeira de angola

Não é brincadeira

Menino vem ver lelê

Com a cabeça no chão

Vai saindo de aú

Completando role

Você diz que entra na roda

Com ginga de corpo sabe balançar

Tem que ser mandingueiro

Para capoeira de angola jogar

History and sentiment behind song

Capoeira Angola refers to every capoeira that keeps the traditions held before the creation of the Regional style. Existing in many parts of Brazil since colonial times, most notably in the cities of Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Recife, it’s impossible to tell where and when Capoeira Angola began taking its present form. The name Angola starts as early as the beginning of slavery in Brazil, when Africans, taken to Luanda to be shipped to the Americas, were called in Brazil black people from Angola, regardless of their nationality. In some places of Brazil people would call capoeira as playing Angola.
