Saudade - ladainha

A great Angola Song (Ladainha) "A Saudade"




Author: Mestre Tony Vargas

A saudade
No coração do capoeira
E igual a uma rasteira
Faz o berimbau parar
Oi então vai
Tocar o toque de angola
Onde o capoeira chora
Mesmo sem querer chorar
Ai se vê
O lamento do guerreiro
Sem rumo sem paradeiro
O poeta que aparece
Ele se esquece
Que é forte e perigoso
Tira o lenço do pescoço
E joga um verso no ar
E diz amor por favor espere um pouco
Não vá me trocar por outro
Eu vim aqui já volto já.

Ie viva meu deus

Capoeira music

Abalou Capoeira

O meu amigo, meu mestre já me falou
Que a onda agora é jogar no Abalou

Fiquei Sabendo e fui lá para confirmar
Quando o Berimbau tocou estava o Mestre Villar

O jogo é bom, na roda nao tem perdao
Capoeira que nao joga nao sente essa emocao

Coro:
Abalou Capoeira abalou
Abalou deixa Abalar


Palma de Bimba

A palma estava errada,
seu bimba falou outra vez
olha bate esssa bate essa palma ligero
que a palma de bimba é um, dois, três

Olha a palma do bimba
coro: é um, dois, três


Ai, ai, ai, ai

Sao Bento me chama
coro: ai, ai, ai, ai
Sao Bento chamou
coro
Para jogar capoeira
coro
Para tocar berimbau
coro

Abalou Capoeira

Abalou is a name that represents the form how we play and try to promote capoeira with the most spectacular and effective moves. Try to develop a modern Capoeira without losing the importance of traditional capoeira.

Nowadays, you can find Abalou Capoeira at: Aracaju (Brazil), Lisbon (Portugal), Madrid, Soria (Spain), Gissen (Germany), Bogota (Colombia) and Goteborg (Sweden).

Capoeira is a mixture of Martial Art, Dance and Sport. Is an expression of major importance in Brazil's history.
