Forró na Caixa

Brazil

The Forró na Caixa group was founded in 2012 in the city of Olinda, Pernambuco in the Northeast of Brazil. Strongly influenced by the sound of the rabeca in the manguebeat cultural movement the group invites the audience to dance and take part in the rythms.

Manguebeat or mangue bit came up at the beginning of the ’90s in reaction to the cultural and economic stagnation of the city of Recife and largely focuses on music, mixing regional rhythms of Brazilian Northeast, such as maracatu, frevo, coco and forró, with rock, hip hop, funk and electronic music.

Next festival is held in August 2020
