Maria Bonita and The Band




Saturday, July 7, 2012
Stage in the Round
235 Queens Quay West

Originating from Brazil's arid northeast, Forró (pronounced "foh-ho") is a regional dance and music rooted in African and European traditions. With its soulful mix of accordion, fiddle, guitar, flute and percussion, Forró has become the craze of a nation, sweeping across Brazil's cultural landscape and inspiring a new generation of musicians.

Wanting to share this magnetic experience with her Toronto community, Jerusa Leão presents Maria Bonita and The Band. A collaboration of artists stretching from diverse musical backgrounds, Maria Bonita and The Band brings the playful rhythms of Forró Pe de Serra from Brazil straight to your backyard.
