|Capoeira is music, poetry, party, diversion and a form of martial
art It was created by the Angolian slaves of Brazil. They pretended
like they were dancing when they practiced so that they wouldn't
be punished. When Brazil abolished slavery in 1888, migrating rural
blacks brought capoeira to the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Bahia,
where it became a tool of streetfighters and petty criminals. Capoeira
was intensely persecuted up until the first decades of the 20th
century but has become a regulated sport.
