History and sentiment behind song

The song references Morena which can refer to skin or hair; it can either mean a dark-skinned woman, or a brunette.

The song talks about Mercado Modelo which is a famous market in Salvador, Bahia. The Mercado Modelo (Popular Market) is a traditional market of artisan products in Salvador, Bahia, which opened in 1912. It is significant for capoeira, as it is the site of perhaps the oldest and longest running street rodas (roda de rua) in Capoeira’s history.
