E Tanto Que Eu Peço a Deus – Mestre Boa Voz

É tanto que peço a Deus
É tanto que Deus me dá
É tão pouco que eu mereço
Mas I nada me faltará
(with English translation)

Mestre Toni Vargas – Noite Sem Lua

“I lived in Engenho de Dentro, a suburb of Rio. There, I had a group of very special friends: we were more than friends, we were brethren of capoeira…”

São Bento Grande de Mestre Bimba

This rhythm is often called “São Bento Grande de Regional” or simply “Regional”.

Benguela

Banguela is a slower rhythm created by Mestre Bimba. It is a “jogo de floreios”, not in the sense of acrobatics…

Iúna

Fui ver Maré (Cruzei o rio)

With English Translation
Cruzei o rio, atravessei o mar
fui ver Maré, mas Maré não tava lá //
I crossed the river, I crossed the sea
I went to see (Mestre) Maré, but Maré was not there
