Café Forró on Saturday 10th March 2018
Whether you want to find out what forró is all about, are already totally converted to the catchy rhythm and close (coladinho) dancing, or perhaps just love live world music,
you don't want to miss this!
Forrobamba, our resident band, formed in London, 2012. Their name joins together two words: 'forró' the folk music style from the North East of Brazil and 'bamba' which means being good at what you do. They are a traditional forró trio with Guilhermino Ramos playing triangle (like you've never seen before!), Cassio Matheus playing zabumba and Rodrigo Vasconcelos playing the accordion.
But of course, it wouldn't be a forró party without lots of dancing! Everyone is welcome on the Café Forró dance floor whether you're dancing head-to-head, thigh-to-thigh forró, or whatever flippin' style you like. For those of you who want to get better acquainted with forró, there's a class just for you at 7:30!
Dance class (beginners to intermediate level, no partner necessary!) 7:30pm start
Forrobamba from 9pm
Entrance £10 with dance class / £5 band only
