LA’s forró stalwarts MôForró and Brazilian funkateers Os Zagueiros from the Samba Society collective once again share the stage to pay tribute to Antônio Carlos & Jocafi, one of the most successful duos of Brazilian Popular Music of the 1970s.
Samba Society is back after a long hiatus to celebrate 10 years with the return of our epic Labor Day backyard samba party at Tropico de Nopal Gallery Art-Space!!!
MôForró, from the Samba Society collective, will be performing at this fun, family-friendly event and opening up for the LEGENDARY samba band, Grupo Fundo de Quintal!
Join MôForró as we bring our infectious Brazilian rhythms to Union Station this holiday season with a hip-swiveling holiday dance party and Cocoa Concert in collaboration with Metro Art Presents.
LA's Latino musical community presents LaMusicaHelps, an eight-hour concert to raise funds for disaster relief organizations serving Mexico and the Caribbean. 100% of all contributions will be donated to emergency relief organizations.
Friends, we'll be gathering once again at Tropico's enchanting patio to dance and enjoy the magic of the forró community in these beautiful summer nights. Moforró will be joining Forró in LA. Andrea and Fabio will teach a demo class to get everyone going, and Reyes, will be spinning the best of forró. If you are interested in learning how to dance forró you can do that every Tuesday night from 7:30-9:00pm at Tropico de Nopal.
