Played by Mestre Virgulinho
Amazonas is a rhythm created by Mestre Bimba. It has no traditionally-associated game, but is sometimes played during graduation rodas.
This rhythm is often called “São Bento Grande de Regional” or simply “Regional”.
This is a generally a faster paced game played with ample movements. Rasteiras, tesouras, and vingativas are common in this game.
Also known as São Bento pequeno or Inverted Angola (because it replaces the high note of the Angola toque with the low and vice versa)…
