Balanço Brasil Presents: Xaxado Mission Brazilian Forró Party // Berkeley

Xaxado Mission is a San Francisco based Brazilian band that specializes in Forró, a genre of music originated in Northeastern Brazil.

Their repertoire brings high energy songs from masters Luiz Gonzaga and Jackson do Pandeiro, in addition to a few Carimbo fusions, and Samba sets tailored for dancing the hours away.

Playing both classic and modern Forró songs, their instrumentation consists of authentic Forró instruments like the zabumba, accordion, triangle, seven string guitar, pandeiro, winds and bass, sometimes harmonica.

If you’ve never heard of Forró, but enjoy dancing to styles like salsa, cumbia, samba, then you won’t want to miss Xaxado Mission!
