Benguela

Played by Mestre Virgulinho

Banguela is a slower rhythm created by Mestre Bimba. It is a “jogo de floreios”, not in the sense of acrobatics like in Capoeira Contemporânea rodas, but in the sense that both players assist each other in creating a beautiful and flowing game that demonstrates their skills. It tends to be played close and low to the ground, and a less aggressive game.
