Feira Nordestina

 

Feira Nordestina is a fair showcasing Northeastern Brazilian culture, its music, and its cuisine.

The place was a hoot… the “fairgrounds” are in the middle of a ovular wall structure, sort of like a stadium with no roof. We grabbed a bite to eat and a beer (for which the first version of the bill seemed to be a tidy scam attempt) and poked around a bit. The most interesting part was the introduction to Brazilian forró music, traditionally consisting of a trio with accordian, rhythm section with triangle, and vocals.
