Capoeira Video: Miudinho Capoeira

I love this video, it’s such a smooth and fluid acrobatic game.  Miudinho is a berimbau toque/style of play created by Mestre Suassana.

This is what Mestre Suassana himself has to say about miudinho:

The game of miudinho is generating controversy because it is being misinterpreted. People are thinking it’s a new capoeira, and it’s nothing like that. I simply rescued an older capoeira, modernized the manner of playing it, changed the sequences… the name miudinho arose because I was observing that capoeiristas were playing very distant from each other and in our time we played very close; thus, I said to people, ‘I want the game more minute, closer, play very tiny.’ Then, I created a toque on the berimbau. Miudinho is not a new capoeira, it’s a different manner to display capoeira. Just like the games of Iuna and São Bento Grande exist, the game of miudinho exists.

Here’s another video showing how this game is used in the roda.
