Forro in the Dark  _Nonsensical
on stage_
Recorded at San Felice Circeo, Italy - August 2011

Forro in the Dark is a New York-based collective of Brazilian expatriates that formed in 2002. The group combines the musical style of forró (pronounced "fo-ho"), the percussion-heavy, rhythmic dance music of their native Brazil, with elements of rock, folk, jazz, and country. (In Brazil, forró literally means party, it’s a gathering, a good time. The objective is to make people dance. Which is exactly what Forro In The Dark have been doing since 2005 at their weekly residence at East Village nightspot Nublu, where their signature blend of down home forró and urban cool have made them one of the city’s must-see buzz bands.
