BombaYo Celebration: Sept. 30
September 28, 2015
Join the Office of Student Life for a celebration of Latin American Heritage Month!
BombaYo is a youth project dedicated to preserving the rich Afro Puerto Rican tradition of Bomba.
Bomba was developed in Puerto Rico over 300 years ago by enslaved Africans from parts of West Africa and the Kongo region and also includes influences from the Spanish colonizers and native Taino people.
Bomba is where singing, dancing and drumming come together in a community celebration of life. Boricuas on the island and stateside are reviving this tradition and in turn uncovering part of their cultural heritage.
Date: Wed. Sept. 30
Time: 1-2 p.m.
Location: Maxwell Hall Student Center
