The Music of Capoeira Angola

The music of Capoeira Angola is intimately related to the movements of the game. Spirituality is the life force, which guides and informs all aspects of the art form, as is the case with many other African rituals.

The sounds that echo from the Berimbau, atabaques and the other instruments of the orchestra are essential to the game of Capoeira Angola. It is through the music that the Capoeirista expresses his movements and feelings, integrating mind and body during the game.
