Bomba In the Square

September 24th, 4 – 6 pm •

Join FAM and Semilla Cultural to celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month with Bomba In The Square. This program is an introduction to the traditional Afro-Puerto Rican dance and music style, bomba, a percussion driven artform consisting of drums, maracas, and wooden sticks called cuás, for banging the sides of the drums. Dancers improvise movement that the lead drummer follows and interprets simultaneously as the drum beats.
