Forro in the Dark
If you've been in the mood for some authentic Brazilian music, here's a good place to start. The Forro boys moved from there to Gotham, making friends with David Byrne and Thom Yorke along the way, among others. Though they're bolstered by no less than three percussionists and Tom Waitss sideman Smokey Hormel, it's Jorge Continentinos lithe flute that leads the group. Order up some caipirinhas and you're all set to immerse yourself in their culture. With Pistolera.
