Capoeira Angola is the dance fight game that enslaved Africans brought to Brazil. Capoeira is music, dance, attack, defense, cunning and playfulness. To the rhythm of musical instruments such as the berimbau two people test each other in the roda, a circle formed by spectators singing. A student first learns the ginga, a danced fighting stance. From the ginga come the attacks with the feet and the head, escapes, and acrobatics.
