Forró in the USA and Luizinho Calixto

In this episode of our Podcast we have two parts.

First we talk to Aline Venturin from Boston, USA about her trip to the Forró London Festival in March. Her group wants to organize the first dance festival dedicated to Forró in the US and went to London in search of inspiration.

In the second part of the program we are connected to Luizinho Calixto a musician specialized on the 8-Bass-Accordion. He introduces the instrument to us and plays some songs for us.

[Talk] Help Forró Bands to organize their tour in Europe

In this episode we have Julia Samel from London as our guest because she started an interesting discussion in Facebook. As she explains in her post bands from Brazil often ask her: “Can you help me organise my tour of Europe?”.

She would really love to help these bands getting in touch with other organizers but faces some difficulties which we discuss in the show.

In the end we talk about the new website of her project Forró Family and a questionaire about “relationships in Forró” she posted recently. Tune in!
