September 24: BOMBAntillana (Bomba)

Get up and dance! Through call-and-response songs and movements, BOMBAntillana engages all ages as active participants in a live Bomba experience. Born over 400 years ago in Boriken (the island known as Puerto Rico), originated on sugar cane plantations, and kept alive through oral tradition and secret gatherings, Bomba, like many AfroIndigenous art forms, continues to be a powerful means of creative expression, healing, resistance, community building, and celebration. To celebrate the closing of our season, FoMu is providing free ice cream. This final concert coincides with the Eliot School’s Faculty Artisan Showcase at Jamaica Plain Open Studios. Come early to check it out!
