The North Stars Forró Band brings the upbeat, down-home music of northeastern Brazil to this year’s Fringe. You might describe “forró” as Brazilian cowboy music, but with the irresistible rhythms you’d expect from a Latin-American folk tradition. Enjoyfancy fiddling, tight vocal harmonies, and ample opportunity for audience participation from Darien Lamen on vocals and cavaquinho, Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology Anaar Desai-Stephens on violin, Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology Jennifer Kyker on vocals and percussion, Eastman Community Music School Faculty Ken Luk on bass, and Dominic Marini on zabumba.

The University of Rochester is a founding partner of the annual Keybank Rochester Fringe Festival.
