Forró on Sunday

Miss Favela is a botequim, a Brazilian neighborhood bistro, located on the edge of Wiliamsburg, right next to the Williamsburg Bridge. They serve traditional Brazilian dishes and caipirinha! On Sundays they play forró. Let's dance?

Forró is a Brazilian country music born in the northeastern sertão — dry, cactus-filled, backwoods cattle country — and spread far and wide in the late 1940's by Luiz Gonzaga, the singer, songwriter and accordion master who made the song "Asa Branca" an international hit.


In the northeast, forró is king. There, the accordion, triangle and zabumba fill nightclubs in the major cities every day of the week.

    Anybody will be driving to this event from Queens or is up to share a cab? This place seems to be hard to get to via public transportation.

      What part of Queens will you be starting from? I might be able to pick you up.
