It’s commonly believed that Brazil’s national dance is Samba. Not so. There is only one dance rhythm that is danced throughout the entire country and it’s called Forró (fo-HALL). The dance is at least 50 years old and the music is older. In fact, the music predates the name, Forró. The music began very simple, with only three instruments—the triangle, accordion, and the zambuma. A zambuma is a single, large drum worn over the shoulder. Both the top side and bottom side are played, with the top having the bass drum sound and the bottom sounds more like a snare.
