About the event


Brasilian  dance-party afficionados FORRÓ LAMPARINA are back at Oussou this Friday  22nd of December, making for a very special Christmas celebration!! 

Partner  dancing is in session with Lamparina - invite friends and family and  come share together with them in this festive season! 


Lamparina  band performs usually as a quartet and brings traditional arrangements  of the popular Brazilian music/party called Forró. The word Lamparina is  the Portuguese name for the kerosene lamp used in the underdeveloped  areas of Brazil where forró comes from. Many Forró parties have been  carried out at the light of the lamparina. 

Lamparina  is sure to present a very vibrant performance, navigating between  heartwarming slow-paced songs and fast paced ones where not moving the  body is not an alternative.

Humberto Porto – Vocals and percussion

Camilla Xicatto - Vocals and Percussion

Jorge Albuquerque – Bass

Steve Grant - Accordion


Forró  is traditionally a couple's dance party from northeast of Brazil in  which rhythms such as xote, baião, xaxado, coco and arrasta pé are  played and danced to. Contemporarily all kinds of couples are welcome as  well as dancing alone. The traditional forró band is composed of an  accordion, a zabumba and a triangle. Other instruments may be added and  are welcome to the traditional trio.
