The Psiu! Forró Festival connects tradition and new dance styles!


For the 7th time Berlin will be the place to celebrate a whole weekend of forró-culture. The intimate atmosphere with limited workshop participants to ensure effective learning on one hand, and the big glorious parties on the other hand, turn the festival into a very special event! Aiming to raise forrozeiros’ awareness of the roots of forró and at the same time bring all styles closer together, we will create a program which includes forró and other Brazilian dances, such as frevo, samba de gafieira or bolero.


We invite beginners and advanced dancers, youngsters and adults to join us for this event and create a welcoming atmosphere!
