Its traditional rhythms, including 'baião,' 'arrasta pé,' and 'xote,' invite people to dance and sing along to lyrics and melodies composed by legends such as Luiz Gonzaga, Dominguinhos, Anastácia, and other great composers. Hailing from Recife and deeply immersed in this musical universe, the multi-instrumentalist Lara Klaus (playing zabumba and lending her vocals) has formed the group 'Forró de Lá' with talented musicians Rodrigo Simões (on guitar and vocals), Gabriel Schwartz (handling flute, percussion, and vocals), and Dominique Poirier (on accordion). Together, they promise to bring a taste of Brazil to Montreal and captivate the audience with their music, ensuring a delightful and entertaining experience for all."
