Puerto Rico Saturday Night

MARCH 22, 2013 | EDITOR

Musical group Hijos de Agueybaná performs its new album Saturday night at the MLK Community Center. The Puerto Rican musicians and dancers perform in a style called “Bomba,” one of the island’s main genres that includes cultural influences from West Africa, Spain, and other Caribbean islands. Bomba is described as a dialogue between dancer and drummer and is a dance of elegance and deliberate steps.
