Vancouver’s premier Brazilian Forro band, Forró do Cana, was founded in 2018 as a passion project, dedicated to the dissemination of the music of Northeastern Brasil. The music of Forró do Cana blends the sounds of the violin (and sometimes the Brazilian fiddle aka. rabeca) and accordion played by Serena Eades and Steve Charles respectively, with the Brazilian roots of Mario Silva’s 7 string acoustic guitar and Sara Magal’s percussion and all Portuguese vocals. A rotating cast of incredible percussionists include Vancouver’s top go-to players of Brazilian music: Liam MacDonald, Celso Machado and Phil Belanger.
