It’s been a while. But Forro In The Dark hasn’t gotten any less fun. We were honored to host the lively and enormously talented group of New York-based, Brazilian ex-pats – Mauro Refosco (zabumba drum and vocals), Guilherme Monteiro (guitar and vocals) and Jorge Continentino (pifano flute, sax and vocals) and Davi (timbau) – at Jackpot Studios in Portland, Oregon at the end of November, 2009.
Here’s an original, downloadable track from their live session (ps – give it a few seconds…there’s a little space and some banter):
Perro Loco is from Forro in the Dark’s 2009 album, Light A Candle, on Nat Geo Music
Forro’s spark has since certainly ignited high spirits. They’ve toured their party all around the world – even joining with Gogol Bordello for a spell in 2010 – to numerous distinguished festivals and venues. Individually, the members continue to build, grow and diversify. Refosco, who has worked with David Byrne since 1994, is also the touring percussionist for Red Hot Chili Peppers and member of Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace.
