Capoeira Video Clips - Contra Mestres Xuxo and Chiquinho
This is one of the capoeira video clips showing a beautiful game of capoeira angola.
The style of capoeira angola is usually characterized by a slower pace, closer movements and staying near the ground during the game. This video clip illustrates these details really well. However, a slower pace isn't always a characteristic of angola as seen in old footage of a game between
Mestre Joao Grande and Mestre Joao Pequeno
The two playing in this clip are Contra Mestre Chiquinho (white shirt) of Grupo Senzala and Contra Mestre Xuxo (green shirt) of Cordão de Ouro. The video shows a beautiful example of a great angola roda with smooth movements and a great conversation between the players.
Also notice the angola bateria in the background with three berimbaus, which is a common sign for an angola roda.
Enjoy the clip!
