LAMPARINA: 🪔

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.💃

FORRÓ: ⛰

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. 🙏
