Latinos Unidos to host BombaYo! celebration this week
Tuesday, October 08, 2013

SUNY Fredonia will host BombaYo! for three lectures/workshops to celebrate the Afro Puerto Rican tradition of Bomba. The Latinos Unidos and Orchesis event will include a variety of Latin music for an interactive celebration.

The first lecture/workshop is Wednesday, Oct. 9, in Rosch Recital Hall; the next on Thursday, Oct. 10, in the Williams Center Multipurpose Room; and the third on Friday, Oct.11 in Mason Hall Room 1080. Each lecture/workshop will start at 8 p.m.

BombaYo! is a youth project dedicating to preserving the Bomba tradition. The group celebrates life through music, dancing and drumming. By encompassing a call and response music method, it is described as more of an experience than a show. The group looks to encourage students to embrace the community and cultural heritage.

Each event is free and open to both the campus and community. For more information, email pcerdas@fredonia.edu.
