Known by many as “The Queen of Forró,” the Brazilian songwriter, singer, poet, and actress Elba Ramalho has been featured on more than three dozen albums since her first solo record, Ave de Prata, took Brazil by storm in 1979. Don’t miss this rare New York appearance by the powerful, multifaceted interpreter of traditional Brazilian styles. With a driving rhythm section made up of triangle, guitar, and accordion, forró is festive music before anything else, and there is no better party hostess than the “dizzying force of nature,” Elba Ramalho (AllMusic.com).
