About the Event
Forrobodó will be a festival held in New York City to celebrate the music and cultural legacy of Luiz Gonzaga, King of Baião. It will be a 3-day event in December, birth month of Luiz Gonzaga, featuring music and dance performances, classes, workshops, and forró parties.
The festival will promote Luiz Gonzaga’s works and cultural contributions to Forró, thereby building bridges for cultural exchange and fostering Brazilian culture in America.
Conceptualized by the Latin Grammy nominated composer Rafael Piccolotto de Lima, this event will bring together many musicians dedicated to the promotion of Brazilian music in NYC, such as Liz Rosa and Beto Camará. Our activities will welcome several artists from the US, Europe and Brazil.
The festival will also feature accordionist and singer Chambinho as a special guest. Apart from being a critically acclaimed musician in Brazil, he appeared in the role of Luiz Gonzaga in the biographic movie De Pai para Filho (“From Father to Son”). He will impersonate the character and perform as a soloist with RPL Chamber Project (a 13-piece orchestra), which will play original arrangements of Luiz Gonzaga’s works written especially for this event.
Critically acclaimed and award winning artists will present collaborative works based on the oeuvre of the King of Baião, shedding light on Forró history, legacy and rhythms of Brazil.
