Only myth surrounds the true origins, birthplace and influences of capoeira because limited evidence exists to support the various theories. Some believe that the seed of capoeira was planted in Africa, but was cultivated in Brazil. Many contend that capoeira was developed in the senzalas, or slave quarters, where enslaved African lived in Brazil.
