Winter is coming.... but we are committed to deliver summer to you through the beats and sounds of tropical Brazil.

Come to Southern Cross on Saturday 27 June and experience the rhythms of Samba & Forró - all in one unforgettable night! Wellington's beat maestros Só Samba will team up with some of the capital's finest latin musos: Alda Rezende (vocals), Emilio Bertrand (accordion)
& Taciano L. Milfont (zabumba).

Some say Forró (pronounced "for'hoh") comes from the English expression "For All". It's a genre of Brazilian music originated in the Northeastern region that encompasses various dance styles and musical beats. Forró has gained widespread popularity throughout Brazil and is closely associated with June Festivals, which celebrate a number of Christian saints.

Samba is well known to most people, mainly Só Samba followers, so come along and dance to upbeat intricate melodies on the spacious dance floor. Dance the way you like; in pairs, alone, in groups or be a swinging wall flower...Just feel the rhythm and go with the flow. This will be a night to remember!

Só Samba is:

Marina Abrahao - Vocals and pandeiro
Christopher Brendan Mulholland - Guitar
André Ô Black – Cuíca and vocals
Adriano Lucena de Mello - Tantan and percussion
Diogo Freire - Cavaquinho and viola caipira
