If Forro in the Dark is serious about anything, it's the party. These four Brazilian New Yorkers start with Brazilian forró and end with a groove that means good times in any language or genre. Their unique hybrid jam is a trademark blend of country soul and urban funk. Whether singing about Rastafarianism, Robin Hood or the Roda, in English or in Portuguese, they charge every note with a palpable energy that needs no translation. Add DC’s own tribute band to the classic Brazilian 1960's tropicália movement Alma Tropicália to the mix and you’ve got the perfect Brazilian Party Mix to celebrate Artisphere’s second anniversary weekend!

Washington DC's Maracuyeah collective is internationally known for rockin mixtape-style Pan-Latin-to-the-Future sounds that shake crowds, and mix in traditional & popular tropical rhythms that DJs Mafe and rAt grew up with. Their sets feature everything from vintage chicha recordings, cumbias rebajadas, tribal gems from 2015, dancehall, 80s rock en español, quincieniera bass, electro-cumbia sensations + tropical booty bangers.
