Rootmaster presents FORRÓ MIÓR, showing refreshing musical originality through powerfully engaging performances, with a jazzy and Afro-Latin take on forró pé-de-serra, Brazilian roots folk dance.

Forró Miór is not the usual forró band. Their approach to this genre – both faithful to its traditions as well as open to contaminations – has among their sources of inspiration genres like cumbia, milonga, swing, samba and Latin-jazz, with which they constantly inject their arrangements.

Their expressive verve, always open to improvisation and interplay, has proven to be appealing to forró dancers as well as to the general audience..
