Celebrating their 20th anniversary, NYC-based Brazilian expats Forró in the Dark mix the driving beats of forró – a style of rural party music from Northeastern Brazil – with rock, psychedelia, and more into a unique musical melting pot that has attracted collaborators including David Byrne, Bebel Gilberto, Angelique Kidjo, Gilberto Gil, and Miho Hatori, among others. Born in New York City and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Gaspar Muniz grew up in an intensely artistic environment. Never attached to a specific genre, he uses his cultural diversity and knowledge in his sets by curating a variety of music styles from different places and eras, and describes himself as a “vibe setter, digger, dancer”.
The LET’S DANCE series brings us all together on the dance floor moving our bodies to the infectious beats of DJs and live bands from around the world.
