Description

The festival ‘Alegria do Norte‘ (Happiness of the North) is a biannual event of Brazilian culture based in Oslo, Norway. The festival represents a music and dance style called forró, which is rapidly gaining popularity outside of Brazil. It combines live music, DJs, performers, workshops and other activities and, of course, the dancers, spectators and fans all around a common interest of culture, music and dance. During three days in different places in Oslo various activities will take place, which are both open to the public and for festival ticket-holders.
