One-sided Traçada is a banda used both in Batuque and in old Regional.
(Banda traçada, Curso de capoeira regional (1965))
Stand close to the opponent and throw a bump with the front of your right thigh into the side of his left leg. This is done using Rooster mechanics; and it throws him on the outer side of his (far) right foot.
Continue by twisting your hips leftward until they point away from the opponent; then sweep both of his legs from the rear to his front with your right foot (Snake mechanics).
What is important is to turn your hips away from the opponent before you pull(Snake); otherwise, the sweep is impossible to apply.
This banda can be done against a firm stance (legs together) as in Batuque; it can also be used to first smash opponent's legs together, then sweep him.
Unlike most others, this banda cannot be performed solo; you have to bump into something with your thigh.
This banda is described in 'Curso de capoeira Regional', and thus was used in old Regional. However, Mestre Decanio in a video (accompanying the 'Mestre Bimba: Capoeira illuminada' movie) describes another type of Banda traçada, which we call Banda traçada two-sided. We will describe it in another article.
This technique was probably also called 'Coxa lisa' in Batuque.
On a higher level, apply the cross step-in with Bear+Seduction1 (and your arms spread); this twists the opponent into the banda and creates a nerve strangle as you throw him, making the fall extra hard (and the banda itself easy).
