If asked to pick two forms of Brasilian Latin Music, most might answer: bossa nova and samba…  But a lessor known style of music developed called Forro.  In the 40’s and 50’s American soldiers and military workers found themselves in Brasil.   As is often the case, when cultures merge peacefully, wonderful magical things happen.   It seems that the Americans BlueGrass players loved to sneak off base, and go play with Brasilian percussionists.   This merged Bluegrass and Brasilian was called by the Americans as:  FOR ALL – today this  is known as Forro originating  in  Bahia, Brasil.

The FlashBand Project is an interesting story of itself.  It’s all about connecting and getting a band together, and Neil Humphrey has forsaken his suit to run the project:  http://www.flashbandproject.org/about/index

So the coming together of Neil Humphrey and Nanny Assis will be an historical event to say the least, you don’t want to miss them at the Car Free Diet Stage 11am, Clarendon Day Sept. 28th.  Who Knows? Maybe Nanny, Neil and Laura will give us an encore number which will bring the house down!!  And we can’t help wonder if Neil’s “Rooftop Series” has met our Twitter Friend,  @RockTheRoofDC ??
