Capoeira Ladainhas
Capoeira Music - La Laue

Ladainhas are a long solo with no chorus response. Typically, every Capoeira Angola roda starts with the mestre singing a ladainha before the game starts. During it, the players do not play; they remain crouched and listening at the foot of the berimbau. The ladainha typically recounts history, tells a myth, or transmits a message. They can range from only a couple lines to over 20.
