Forró from Brazil

"Forró is a type of Brazilian dance and the music associated with it; forró was developed from Baião and the dance rhythms quadrilha and xaxado, with influences of European Folk Music like chula and schottische. Forró is the most popular genre in Brazil's Northeastern region, but is also common in the Southeast, albeit with a radically different type of dance " -- Janet Jongebloed
