Trio Catarina plays a traditional Forro from the Northeast of Brazil. It’s a style called Forro Pe De Serra where the instrumentation consists of a Triangle, a little bass drum called Zabumba, and an Accordion. All these instruments have a European background, but once in the hands of a Brazilian from the region, this unique combo merges into this very unique style that is becoming more and more popular around the world. 

Trio Catarina is:
Mauro Refosco on Zabumba
Gillo Oliveira on Triangulo
Felipe Hosting on Accordion 


Location: The home of WMI Board Co-Chair Daisy Paradis on 71st Street between Lexington and Third Avenues. You will receive the exact address in your confirmation email!
