Whether you want to find out what forró is all about, are already totally addicted to the catchy rhythm and close dancing, or perhaps just love live world music - you don't want to miss this!

Forrobamba, our resident band, formed in London, 2012. Their name joins together two words: 'forró' the folk music style from the North East of Brazil and 'bamba' which means being good at what you do. They are a traditional forró trio with Guilhermino Ramos playing triangle (like you've never seen before!), Cassio Matheus playing zabumba and Rodrigo Vasconcelos playing the accordion.

But of course, it wouldn't be a forró party without lots of dancing! Everyone is welcome on the Café Forró dance floor whether you're dancing head-to-head, thigh-to-thigh forró, or whatever flippin' style you like. For those of you who want to get better acquainted with forró, there's a class just for you at 7:30!

Dance class (beginners to intermediate level, no partner necessary!) 7:30pm start Forrobamba from 9pm

Entrance £10 with dance class / £5 band only
