The idea of an organised network of forró professionals in Europe existed long before we actually started the Federation. However, these kinds of ideas take time to grow and mature. 

Due to the lockdown, five of us found ourselves with time to start this initiative and the first brainstorming began. It took us more than 6 months of preparation before we held our first constitutive general assembly on December 18th 2020 with 32 founding members from all over Europe.
