This event has ended.

Forró in the Dark starts with the dance form of forró, digs deep into the sounds of northeastern Brazil, and draws on other musical currents from the world over. Whether singing about Rastafarianism, Robin Hood, or the roda circle of capoeira, in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, the four Brazilian New Yorkers in the group charge every note with a palpable energy.
