London

 

Forró - The Brazilian, now very much European, hip-swivelling, dance floor-filling, popular music and dance originated in Brazil’s north-eastern states. Simple put, "It's less competitive than salsa and less pedantic than tango...". Traditionally, it’s a couple's dance and the music involves only three instruments (accordion, zabumba and a metal triangle).
