Brazilian country music!? YES! Forró is a dance and musical style from rural Northeastern Brazil. Music is sung in Portuguese with fiddle, accordion and lots of percussion. No experience necessary — but if you know a two-step or can envision yourself joining a slightly funky, multicultural square dance scene, you will be right at home!
