About the event

Fun Fact! Brothers Emmanuelli Nater (Jose, Jorge, and Victor) students and friends of the famous Bomba Cepeda Family - with their Center for Cultural Research of Eternal Roots (Centro de Investigation Cultural Cultural Raices Eternas) - CICRE in Spanish - created in Puerto Rico during the 90s the so-called "BOMBAZO." they were devoted to "get down" the Bomba from the high stages so that way the Puerto Rican people and everyone else could participate and learn in the folklore music. Thanks to this today there are "Bombazos" in many parts of the world.

The Afro Caribbean Cultural Center, Brass City Bomba and Rafael Feliciano-Roman present:
