Music is at the heart of Capoeira. Music (instruments as well as songs) determines the Capoeira play and gives the capoeiristas guidance and energy to perform. The music tells stories about Capoeira history, myths, mestres or comment on the current play. On this page you will find a variety of music: ladainhas, corridos & maculele. Feel free to add your own song/cantiga/lyrics with or without translation to this music page.
