Capoeiristas are also musicians, for they sing and play the berimbau, caxixi, pandeiro, agogo, atabaque and reco-reco. The melodies can be rhyming prose, or songs with or without refrains.
Colorful names like samba-de-roda, corrido, ladainha, chula, oracoes and bendicoes describe the interplay of voices that go with the interplay of movement by participants in a capoeira roda.
