Stage in the Round
235 Queens Quay West
Zé Fuá delivers a blast of energy and excitement in authentic pernambuco-style forró.
Celebrating the centennial of Luis Gonzaga (Gonzagão), the King of Baião, Luciano Porto and his band will play a large selection of his best songs from a life-long carreer, along with songs from various other important forró composers and interpreters such as Jackson do Pandeiro, Alceu Valença, Gilberto Gil, Trio Nordestino and Cascabulhos.
Luciano has been bringing forró to the Toronto musical scene for the past eight years, and it's about to become a city-wide epidemic similar to 1950s Brazil!!
Zé Fuá is composed of Luciano Porto (accordion and vocals), Adam Hutchison (Brazilian guitar), David Kelman (acoustic bass), Rodrigo Calabria (zabumba drum), Flavia Oliveira (triangle), and Alvaro Esteban (pandeiro)
