Capoeira (pronounced ka-poo-e-da) is a dynamic Afro-Brazilian art form unique to Brazil, which developed during the slavery era through shared cultural customs, rituals, and fighting techniques. Capoeira was born as an expression of resistance and resilience. Slaves used capoeira to fight to escape and resist capture, but concealed its combative purpose through music, song, and dance.
