party for all

We went back to the Feira de São Cristóvão on Friday for a great night of Forró music and dancing.

Forró is a style of dancing from north-eastern Brazil. You can read more about it here and check out youtube too.

It seems a very diverse type of dance. Basically a do-what-you-like, free-for all. Hence the name - from the portuguese for ´commotion,´ or in other versions, from the English, ´For all,´ meaning that the parties were open to local Brazilians as well as the English railroaders.
