Oslo Forro Festival
Alegria do Norte 2019
The festival ‘Alegria do Norte‘ (Happiness of the North) is an event of Brazilian culture based in Oslo, Norway happening every two years. It represents music and dance called forró, which is rapidly gaining popularity outside of Brazil. It combines live music, including musicians, producers, performers and teachers, DJs and, of course, the dancers, spectators and fans all around a common interest in culture, music and dance.
During three days on the magnificent cusp of the Nordic Summer, Oslo will come alive with music and activities, both open to the public and for festival ticket-holders. Between them, concerts, parties, classes of dance, classes of music, capoeira and more. The overall aim of the festival is to inclusively showcase and diffuse Brazilian culture in Norway and Europe.
