Psiu! Forró Festival Berlin
Bild Psiu! Forró Festival Berlin

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

The dance of the Coco exists on the coast and in the inland Pernambucos in numerous variations: "Coco-de-roda", "coco-de-embolada", "coco-de-praia "," coco-do-sertão "," coco-de-umbigada ". The dance has besides the African also Indian (Tupi) roots and depending on the region it is adapted to taste of the local population.

The rhythm of the Coco is played with four instruments Ganzà, Surdo, Pandeiro and Triângulo. The characteristic sound of the Coco is generated with the tender ramming of the feet with the "Tamancos" (wooden sandals). The rhythm is also underlined by the clapping hands of the actors.
