We are closing down our Podcast …

Since 2013 we are bringing Information about Forró to a German/English speaking community though Radio / Podcast. Four Forrózeiros from Freiburg founded the Project in 2014 but little by little the participants moved away and got involved in other projects.

Since 2017 Vadinho Agotado was alone and unable to keep up the monthly radio shows.
The objective always was to bring information and debates to a non-Portuguese speaking community. This is close to impossible if only one person maintains the Podcast.

In order to have a lively debate or making an interview you need at least two persons with English and Portuguese knowledge to make consecutive translations of interviews and present the information in an adequate way.

So if you feel like you always wanted to do Podcasting and you are passionate about Forró and you speak both English and Portuguese well enough to translate and host a show in English PLEASE comment bellow or write an email to “radio [at] forroz.in”

Telegram Event Channel

Since years we are publishing on our website most of our events here in Freiburg. Additionally there is a Facebook Group, a Facebook Page and a e-mail Newsletter.

So far a channel has been missing where dancers can subscribe for events happening in Freiburg and the region. We don t want to encourage even more users to sell their data to Facebook (incl. WhatsApp) if they want to stay up-to-date with events in Freiburg.

This is why we created the Telegram channel“Forrozin” (https://t.me/Forrozin) where you get informed about Forró events in Freiburg. Alongside we have created a Telegram group for discussion about Forró as well as spontaneouse dance-events.

If you do not have Telegram installed yet you can get it here.

We are almost sold out:

Some tickets are left for the parties on thursday and sunday. Friday and saturday parties are sold out! The reason: we have recently found out that the dancing area at the party location will be smaller than expected due to delayed repair work. We had to limit the tickets for security reasons.

Nevertheless we are looking forward to welcome over 330 people – And to welcome YOU!
