Forró Star Band
Friday, April 12, 2013 at 9:30 PM (PDT)
Includes Zumba at 8:30 pm.
Making its Ashkenaz debut, Forró Star Band plays modern electronic forró (dance music of Brazil’s northeast) and sertanejo univeritario, the forró-related dance called arrocha. The Bay Area band came together three years ago and mixes original tunes with the hottest recent dance hits from Brazil. While forró traditionally was driven by accordion and percussion, Forró Star Band fills dance floors with the highly evolved instrumentation and styles popular with Brazilian youth, heavily electronic, including electric guitar, drums, keyboards, percussion, and four singers led by vocalist Ana Paula Leite.
