History and sentiment behind song

Aidê is a name associated with “independence and boldness, someone who knows what they want and fights for it”.

In this song, Aidê is a black woman from Africa, who’d been brought to Brazil to work as a slave.She was beautiful, with green eyes, a magical singing voice, and she could cook.Obviously, the master of the house fell in love with her and wanted to marry her – being a slave she wasn’t going to have much say in the matter.Fortunately she managed to escape, and flee to the Quilombo Camugerê.Here she found freedom and kinship with other escaped Africans who’d manage to flee their captors.

Camugerê (or Camujerê) was the name of a large Quilombo that existed in Brazil back in the days of slavery.
