      Capoeira Angola, formerly a regional Brazilian form of self-defense and dance, has its roots in African traditions and is becoming popular in urban centers around the world, growing into a widely taught art form and philosophy. This call-and-response singing is accompanied by compelling rhythms played on berimbau and percussion instruments that express and control the performance of the Capoeira fight/dance. The musicians and singers featured on these 39 tracks are among the finest modern performers of Capoeira Angola music. "A good introduction to this highly passionate and expressive artform." —Cultural Survival Quarterly
