PORRETA! FORRO NIGHTS
PORRETA! FORRO NIGHTS
Porreta is your source for legit brazilian Live music in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Come celebrate the music of Northeastern Brazil featuring:

Dona Francisca: The Bay Area’s finest ensemble dedicated to the infectious Brazilian style called forró, Dona Francisca promises a dance party experience like no other. Based in San Francisco, the group was founded by former members of regional stars Forró Brazuca, triângulo player Paulo Presotto and percussionist Chris Thomas, plus former members of Katavento, flutists Sonia Caltvedt & Rebecca Kleinmann, and the incredibly talented accordionist Diana Strong. Eduardo Amado brings the backbone of the band with his versatile and dominant bass guitar. Originating in Northeastern Brazil, forró has at its core the interaction of triangle, accordion and zabumba (large Brazilian drum), and despite this modest instrumental combination, is some of the most inspiring, danceable music in existence.
