Originated in our regular Tropical Diaspora Party in Berlin this project is one we were waiting for since the beginning of our journey as recording company. The Tropical Diaspora Party in Berlin was the space and laboratory for many local bands where artistic freedom and joy came together. These Bands were playing in the most relevant venues of the German capital.
One party worth to mention was the Tropical Diaspora Party Vol.39 at the venue BiNuu. The experiment was to have for the first time ever two bands on the stage playing Cumbia and Forró. We call this joint venture FORRÚMBIA, an event to promote those two great rhythms from South-America. This was the kick start for the new record to be released soon by Tropical Diaspora Records honoring the original new roots music from Brazil.
Forró de Cabeça is a band that gives people of different ages and backgrounds the possibility to dive into the cultural roots of the state of Pernambuco in the North-East Brazil including rhythms such as forró, coco, afoxé and ciranda.
