‘Viva la Bomba’ is a celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican culture through a form of music and dance called Bomba. Rooted in African traditions, Bomba has been a vital tool of resistance and preservation for the Afro-Puerto Rican community. This event will feature BomVibes, a Bomba group bringing their beats from Loíza, the “capital of tradition”! The night will also showcase guest speakers highlighting the predominantly Afro-Puerto Rican community of Loíza, Puerto Rico. All of the proceeds from this event will support our social initiative in Loíza to build a ‘Park of Life’ that will serve as a space for holistic development of the community’s youth.
