    There's a video article on an African dance-fight here: http://www.africawrites.com/thismonth1.html

    There's at least some superficial similarity to capoeira.

One thing that supports this are paintings that date to the 1700s depict Capoeira but do not show a roda, instruments, etc that is associated with Capoeira now. In contrast Johann Moritz Rugendas painting in 1835 does show a roda and what appears to be pple chanting.
    The writing on the history of capoeira appears confused as few writers distinguish between the various styles of capoeira that existed pre-1900. I'm unaware of any references to the Bahian style of capoeira (that modern styles of capoeira are descended from) prior to the early 1900s; it's possible that the lack of music relates just to other styles of capoeira, or that earlier Bahian capoeira lacked music.

    "Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way to grasping reality -- it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see."
