Well this parties, are also named FORRÓ, from the English For All. In 18 and 19 centuries English engineers was here in my state (Minas Gerais - General Mines) to dig gold and build Railroads (to transport the gold). In the winter (June and July) people celebrate some catholic Saints, so English people do some parties and invited all workers, the rich and the poor ones, so they call party For All, but simple people called those parties Forró. They build a huge camp fires and drink and eat hot dishes and hot drinks.
