Abadá

Abadá

In Brazil, Abadá (IPA2|a.ba.'da) is a kind of robe brought by African Muslims that were brought to Bahia to work as slaves. The word is also used to refer to the pants worn by capoeristas and for shirts sold in some carnivals or shows, that allow or complement admission to the event.

Original abadás were white. Capoeira abadás are generally white and sport the capoeira school's logo (usually on the left leg). However, there are generic abadás that some school train in, reserving their uniform abadá for demonstrations. In addition, some capoeira schools allow any exercise pants for training. Several schools stick to white as a symbol of purity, representing the pure martial art of capoeira.

Carnival abadás may be any kind of shirt, with arbitrary colors and logos.

Also Abada is a capoeira school formed in 1985 in Brazil by Mestre Camisa. It has many branches all over the world, such as in Russia [ [www.abadacapoeira.ru] ] and the U.S. [ [www.artecapoeira.com] ]
