Brazilian Nites

Forroçacana – Toronto

Festa Junina is Brazil’s second largest festival after Carnival and just as fun! Celebrate this amazing festival with traditional music and dances like forró and quadrilha. Forróçacana is one of Brazil’s most innovative forró bands, celebrating 25 years of thrilling audiences with their high-energy music.

Forróçacana emerged in 1997 from the union of a young group of musicians who had a shared love for forró pé de serra and were heavily inspired by forró legends Luiz Gonzaga, Jackson do Pandeiro, and Dominguinhos. Their unique style, born from three decades of performance, combines traditional forró with other Brazilian rhythms such as samba and choro, while also drawing from other influences such as rock and reggae music. They have made several global international tours and they now perform for the first time in Washington, DC.

This is a family-friendly event. All ages are welcome.
