Gafieira Music

As I said on the forró page, if you like to dance you have to try a gafieira in Rio or a good forró in Fortaleza or wherever...Gafieira originally meant dance, but became the name for dance halls in Rio also. If you want to learn to dance to the sound of choros and sambas, well, here we are. These guys are la crème de la crème!
