The word "cangoma" means "drum" in the Bantu language. The text is written in a Portuguese dialect, with words slightly different from the conventional language. This song celebrates the end of slavery, which brought much oppression to Africans and their descendants who were brought to Brazil. While the percussion is optional, it really adds a lot of flavor to this highly charged Brazilian folk Song. Also available for Three-Part Mixed/Optional Baritone voices (BL831).
