EducArte celebrates its first annual Festa Junina party, featuring forr贸 super band Forr贸莽acana directly from Brazil!

Festa Junina is Brazil鈥檚 second largest festival after Carnival and just as fun! Celebrate this amazing festival with traditional music and dances like forr贸 and quadrilha. This year, EducArte presents Forr贸莽acana, one of Brazil鈥檚 most innovative forr贸 bands, celebrating 25 years of thrilling audiences with their high-energy music.

Forr贸莽acana emerged in 1997 from the union of a young group of musicians who had a shared love for forr贸 p茅 de serra and were heavily inspired by forr贸 legends Luiz Gonzaga, Jackson do Pandeiro, and Dominguinhos. Their unique style, born from three decades of performance, combines traditional forr贸 with other Brazilian rhythms such as samba and choro, while also drawing from other influences such as rock and reggae music. They have made several global international tours and they now perform for the first time in Washington, DC.

Special guest DJ Grace will open the night. Special thanks to Mulheres Brasileiras de Virginia for bringing their rich experience and knowledge of the traditional Festa Junina, complete with typical foods, Junina flags and decorations, and a fun enactment of the traditional 鈥渃asamento na ro莽a,鈥 or shotgun wedding. Wear your best caipira costume! Forr贸莽acana will bring the energy and get us dancing forr贸 and quadrilha all night.

This is a family-friendly event. All ages are welcome.

Presented by EducArte.
