Forró - Introduction to Brazilian musical styles

Forró is one genre of Brazilian music that originated in Northeastern Brazil. It encompasses various dance styles as well as a number of different musical beats. This music genre has gained widespread popularity in all regions of Brazil and recently, in 2012, had a peak of popularity outside of Brazil. Forró is closely associated with Brazilian June Festivals, which celebrate a number of Christian saints. The most celebrated is Saint John's day.

This event intends to be just one of the many that it will take place here in Oberlin. If you want to know more about Brazilian musical styles, or if you like to dance, or if you don't even know how to dance, just come and have fun.
