Forró is a traditional style of music from Northeastern Brazil. It is a lively, syncopated style of music, usually featuring an accordion, triangle, and zabumba (a Brazilian drum). It is believed to have originated in the early 20th century, when immigrants from the Portuguese-speaking Azores islands brought their musical styles to Brazil. It has since developed to include a variety of influences, such as African and European rhythms, as well as influences from Northeastern Brazilian folk music. Today, Forró is popular throughout Brazil and is increasingly gaining attention abroad.
