Forró band FALAMANSA from Brazil to perform at the Academy in Dublin
Forró is a typical and danceable rhythm from north eastern Brazill. Falamansa (which means smooth talk) have been a crowd pleaser since they started in 1998 wherever they go.
Falamansa, formed by Tato (guitar and vocals), Alemão (zabumba drum), Dezinho (triangle and percussion) and Valdir do Acordeom (accordion), has sold over 5,000,000 records. They have played at the world’s biggest international music festivals and are considered Brazil’s greatest “forró” band today.
