On the 22nd of December 2017 we created the Telegram channel“Forrozin” (https://t.me/Forrozin) where we publish information about Forró events in Freiburg. Alongside we have created a Telegram Chat for discussion about Forró as well as spontaneous dance-events.
Today our channel has reached 100 Members! If you want to keep informed join the Channel now!
If you do not have Telegram installed yet you can get it here.

Dear Participants of the Freiburg Forró Marathon September 2018,
prepare yourself to the next weekend and read these additional information, please!
Our facebook page “Forrozin Freiburg” is blocked. But you can find all information here on our website.
Remember that the marathon is going to be in a tango location that has a special and expensive dance floor. Street shoes are not allowed! Bring clean shoes or dance with havaianas or barefoot.
Be quite at the entrance of the location, especially when you arrive or leave. Respect the neighbors!
We will open a small and simple bar for you. We have beer, water, lemonade, but no caipirinhas. It´s too much work 😉 You are free to bring you own drinks.
Some workshops are called “advanced”. This means that they are more difficult. If they are too hard for you, you don´t have to force yourself to do them. Be gentle to yourself and to the other participants. Otherwise everybody will suffer 😉
Stay tuned here or via “Marathon”
More and more bands coming to Europe to show us their amazing Forró tunes. Here in Freiburg Live-Bands started to show up about five years ago and just this year there were already eight Forró concerts.
Since everyone wants to hear the band we need to have a PA to amplify their sound and their the tricky part kicks in. From this part on you need technology most of us do not use in their day to day life. So you can either hire a sound professional and the equipment or you try to do the cheap way and buy little by little your own equipment and understand what is going on.
We invited the musician and sound engineer Rodrigo Ramalho from Conterrâneos / Raiz do Sana to our program to discuss the perfect Forró Sound.
I need to admit it gets a bit nerdy but I still hope some of you will enjoy this program.
