Probably the best known dance music of Brazil is samba because it is the traditional dance of Carnaval. Then of course there is bosa nova, but I prefer another form of Brazilian music and dance – forró. It’s hot, sexy and great to watch.
Forró, the name of the dance and popular in Brazil’s North-East is hardly known outside Brazil. There are three music genres of forró. All these genres use only three instruments (accordion, zabumba and a metal triangle). The lyrics are about romance, love, passion or jealousy.
