Capoeira Music Instruments

The main factors that distinguish Capoeira from other Martial Arts are the Capoeira Music and its musical instruments.

Bateria is the phrase representing all the musical instruments participating in the Capoeira.  The Bateira is the soul of the Capoeira and is a big part of the Roda, giving it the AXE.

Singing and hand clapping are also considered as part of the Bateira.
