Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art/dance, was originated by African slaves brought to Brazil during the Colonial period. These Africans created capoeira which served as a form of cultural expression in opposition to the institution of slavery. Capoeira consists of an improvised dialogue of the body, which is underpinned by philosophical, physical, musical and cultural elements.
