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 comes from the traditional Sambas de Roda of Bahia and is perhaps the oldest of the toques listed…
This is a generally a faster paced game played with ample movements. Rasteiras, tesouras, and vingativas are common in this game.
Mestre Bimba’s Santa Maria is different from the Santa Maria in Capoeira Angola.
