History and sentiment behind song

Besouro is a semi-mythical character from Brazilian Folklore. He is celebrated as a Bahian hero, who fought against corrupt police and injustice, using a combination of his unrivalled Capoeira skills, malicía, and mandinga. Just like Robin Hood, though officially a wanted criminal and outlaw, he was really a champion of the people and a freedom fighter.
