Afro-Puerto Rican Folk Art Celebration @ Pelham Art Center |  |  |

Pelham Art Center welcomes internationally-acclaimed performer/educator and Bronx native Jose Ortiz, a.k.a. Dr. Drum, to lead the community in a Bomba music celebration. Bomba is an African-derived music and dance tradition developed in Puerto Rico. With call-and-response singing, drumming and dance, BombaYo will kindle the joy of this Afro-Puerto Rican art form and ignite the ancestral rhythms of Bomba. Performance is followed by hands-on art workshop highlighting Afro-Puerto Rican culture.
