Bomba y Plena: La Música Negra

The marginalized black music of Puerto Rico miraculously survived and has come to hold a special place of dignity and community expression for Puerto Ricans on and off the island. The elegant Bomba is the most African of Puerto Rican artistic genres, and the Plena - with its labor roots - has risen to truly represent the Puerto Rican working class in unrivaled fashion.

Co-presented in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival
