About

MôForró plays accordion-driven, hip-swiveling dance music in the traditional pé de serra style of Brazilian forró, featuring accordion, guitar, fiddle, flute, zabumba (Brazilian drum), triangle, voice and percussion. Since forming in late 2012, MôForró—along with the Forró in L.A. collective—has been integral to the growing popularity of forró as a dance genre throughout Southern California.

MôForró has played in major cities throughout the US including San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and New York and can be seen regularly at Trópico de Nopal Gallery and Art Space in Echo Park.
