z'Bumba brings Forró (fo-HOh,) the raucous, rebellious roots music of Brazil's northeast, to the American Northwest.

What if Zydeco met Salsa on a hot rainforest night?

As if love child of such a meeting, this irrepressibly danceable music is a fresh, tropical aural fruit salad, a gorgeous mixture of impossibly delicious sounds like juicy mango accordions, peppery percussion, and the passion-fruit Portuguese poetry as sung by scintillating São Paulo songstress Gabriella. It's hard to believe it was once the theme music of the Cangaçeiros, the infamous desert 'pirates' of Brazil's hinterlands.

Forró dancing is easy but fun, a little like a two-step; it's as if English country dancing had run off and gone wild in the colonies, especially the squaredance known as "Quadrilha." It's accessible to even the most sober, solemnly avowed non-dancers.
