History and sentiment behind song

This appears to be a song about a woman who hascome to the market to "raise hell". Perhaps someone tried to sell her a rotten coconut?

Camboatá (kahm-boh-ah-TAH)This word may connote of two things:

1) certain plants with medicinal properties;

or 2) a small fish that lives in fresh water.
