Event Details

La Peña celebrates its 39th Anniversary this June! What better way to celebrate thanbomba to showcase our community of students who are engaging in arts, music, dance, and cultural education.

Join us in our 39th Year Class Recitals.  This day features: Bomba Y Plena

La Peña’s low cost classes give hundreds of youth and adult students access to training by highly regarded art professionals teaching a wide array of art forms. This year’s recitals include:

Bomba, Afro-Puerto Rican Dance

Instructors: Shefali Shah & Hector Lugo

In this class, students learn Bomba songs, dances, rhythms, and beats along with Bomba history and its significance and place in Puerto Rican and Afro-Caribbean culture.

Bomba is a traditional form of Puerto Rican music and dance. The central feature of all bomba dancing is its improvisational character. The dancer calls, with her or his moves, for specific accents and figures, piquetes, that the drummer has to execute on the drum. Musically, bomba features the use of the drum and other percussion instruments in combination with an African derived call and response vocal style.
