Become a member

Why should you become a member of the federation, as a Forró organiser, musician or teacher?

Because the Federation aims to support you and others like you. Together we can create network effects that alone are not possible.

You can and we also ask you to vote on the projects the federation should work on and that we can make happen with your membership contribution: Roadmap
If you have another idea about what the federation should work or spend money on, please submit your proposal to this overview

What the federation already did:

  • Create the central World Forró Map displaying all Forró organisers, musicians and teachers
  • Run the “Call for Projects 2022” with 4 funded winner projects
  • Publish the “ForróLetters” newsletter with news, history, music and culture surrounding Forró
  • List all Forró event platforms that we know of to promote your events or Festivals – for you to use and forrozeiros to easily find your events
  • Start a Blog category for professionals giving tips on how you can improve as an organiser, musician or teacher

    Here you find more info about our mission and check out our full roadmap.
    We love to support you through network effects that become possible when you vote and even more when you become a member.

What are the benefits of being a member of the European Forró Federation?

While supporting all Forró in Europe, you as our members will have benefits:

  • Decision making privileges related to the activities and spendings of the Federation
  • Access to the network and members of the Federation
  • Promotion of your events and projects on the Federation’s social medias
  • Access to an updated contact list of Forró professionals across Europe
  • Personal support when having questions or issues about professional Forró topics ( e.g. how to start a community? how to make my Forró career profitable?)
  • being able to use the name of the Federation in applications for local funds which can provide credibility and legitimisation
  • you want even more? let us know about it:

Who can be a member?

Members are not individual people, rather organisations, associations and registered freelancers that work with Forró across Europe. However, persons or groups of several persons who plan to become a legal entity in the next two years can apply for a newcomer membership.
To become a member of the Federation you confirm:

  • that you agree with the statutes of the Federation
  • that you are based on the European continent
  • that one of your main objectives is linked to forró
  • that you already are a legal entity or that you are planning to found a legal entity in the next two years
  • that you will pay the membership fee

How can YOU get involved if you’re not a member?

With our actions we want to focus on both our members and non-members alike, because we have the same common goal – share our passion for Forró with the biggest number of persons possible.
If you are an enthusiastic Forró dancer in the community and have an idea for us or want to volunteer, we always need specialised help from people with a variety of skills! So get in touch by sending us an email to!
