Forró group Falamansa is pioneer in the so-called “Forró Universitário”. The dancing and passionate music of the group has marked a whole generation. The group comes to Brasília to present the last concert of its recent tour “Lá da Alma”.
It’s commonly believed that Brazil’s national dance is Samba. Not so. There is only one dance rhythm that is danced throughout the entire country and it’s called Forró. The dance is at least 50 years old and the music is older.
Falamansa helped to revamp this rhythm for the younger audiences. With the rise of the forró on the nights of the capital of São Paulo, the “forró universitário” movement emerged all over the country.
