According to Mazda, they got Spank to remake Serapis Bey's "Zoom Zoom Zoom" for their television commercial. It took me a while to find this original because the person I talked to at Mazda botched the spelling of Serapis Bey. I like the Spank version better, though. It sounds more polished.

It sure is a shame that he had to die. He might not have been thinking to straight when he went for that berimbau...Should've just saved Kerrigan. If you like capoeira but can't find anything to work out alone to, Get this... I haven't found anything with this upbeat a recording...UW Capoeira

I enjoyed the more modern rhythms to the great berimbau ones. There was a lot of roda-ready capoeira music. I like to work out to it. My friends and I think its great for the jogo because it has a nice pace, and its makes you wanna move.

I admit that I have the CD and the movie to go with it. I am a capoeirista, and I think that this movie was only good to bring capoeira into the mainstream. The music is decent (I actually listen to 3 songs on the CD regularly), but they gave it too much of a hip-hop/rap feel. I'm ok with a snare drum in Paranaué (or however they chose to spell it) and Zum Zum Zum (yes, that's how to spell it, none of this Zoom business. Damn Mazda). I just feel that capoeira music is best left to the berimbau, atabaque, pondeira, agogo, reco-reco, etc. BTW the whole happy movie part with the making bad kids good? Listen to Zum Zum Zum. "...Zum Zum Zum Capoeira mata um..." it means capoeira can kill you (literally, capoeira kills one). If you want a good capoeira CD, get something by Mestre Suassuna (my capoeira grandfather), Mestre Barrao, or Mestre Deputado. You can feel axé in their music, no offence to Serapis Bey who did the capoeira music to "Only the Strong." They should have had Mestre Amen do the CD, HE WAS IN THE MOVIE AFTER ALL. If this is a first capoeira CD for someone to have fun with, it's got a good beat. It's not capoeira music to play to. Go buy/make a berimbau and make your own.

This is the best soundtrack in the world. It is money and gets 10 dollar signs on my money scale. It's just a shame Donovan had to die.........

Do not purchase this CD unless you enjoy rap (which I don't like). I bought this CD because I like the "Zoom Zoom" music that is part of the Mazda TV commercial, and this is an inspiring track, but it is not representative of the rest of the CD.

When I first heard the soundtrack I couldn't believe it. I had listened to Capoeira music before but the hip-hop flair is what tuned me into it. There are some great capoeira tracks to do a high energy workout to. My kickboxing instructor even uses it for his class. The hip-hop is pretty refreshing and reminiscent of the 'old school' dayz where tracks didn't have to be filled with materialism, vulgarity, and violence to be considered good.

This cd is awesome. I haven't stopped listening to it since I bought it over a month ago. The only drawback is that there are too few songs on this album. This cd comes highly recommended!
