Meaning of umbigada

Danilo Enrique Noreña Benítez


It is a typical Brazilian dance, originally practiced by African slaves. Afro-Brazilian dance dating back to the mid-19th century. It's a blow or rub of bellybutton from the dancers.



Umbigada : Blow, lightly, that happens with the belly, in the dances of the wheel and that means the invitation or the call for the umbigado to replace the dancer in charge of the solo, the singing.
