Bomba is the oldest living musical tradition of Boriken, the island currently known as Puerto Rico, and reflects the powerful forces that shaped the island’s history, drawing from the West African and Taino (Indigenous) experience with enslavement enforced on the island by the Spanish Crown prior to the 1700’s. Bomba music and dance originated in plantations when the enslaved were “allowed'' one day of rest. Bomba gatherings became a ritual for creative expression, celebration, healing, resisting oppression and secretly planning escapes.
Through this workshop you will learn basic Bomba movements, songs, instrumentation and history all in one.
