Mark your calendars: Metro Presents Môfo, the only band in Los Angeles that plays in the traditional “pé de serra” style of forró. (Forró–pronounced fo-HAW–is accordion-driven, hip-swiveling dance music originating from the northeast of Brazil.) Check out the video above for a sample of forró sound from a flash mob in Germany.

The band will play in the Fred Harvey Room at Union Station from 8 to 10 p.m. on Friday, August 22. There will be dance instruction offered at 8 and 9 p.m. and Môfo will play two 45-minute sets beginning at 8:15 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. The performance is free and dancing is welcome!
