Ganhadeiras X Molly Malone

Were called "Ganhadeiras" Black women (enslaved or already free) who were on the streets offering various types of services, such as washing clothes, manufacturing medicines, taking care of some business and selling, especially food. The majority use to walk around with their food trays or baskets on their heads, or a minority, in fixed points in the city, which became more common for the Baianas of Acarajé.

Griots X Hags with the Bags

A griot is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet, or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition and is often seen as a leader due to their position as an advisor to royal personages. As a result of the former of these two functions, they are sometimes called a bard.
