Forro fo Sho began as an outgrowth of the research interests of Brendan Loula. After about a decade of training capoeira and nursing an interest in Brazilian music and culture more generally, Loula's interest in Forro began in earnest after rediscovering the genre in the bowels of the music library of UW-Madison after beginning his MA in ethnomusicology in 2012. Hours of listening to classic forro set the stage for the foundation of a band, and a well worn but functional, red, sparkly accordion on the shelf at St. Vincent De Paul with a $100 provided the push into reality.
This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, Wisconsin Union members and their guests. Anyone can become a Wisconsin Union member at union.wisc.edu/membership.
