Event Details: 

Bomba y Plena captures the heart of western Puerto Rico, telling the stories of its people through lyrics that weave an image of culture, society and daily life. Salsa, or “musica caliente,” may have origins in Cuba, but its popularity in the U.S. can be directly attributed to Puerto Ricans in New York, starting in the 1950s. Learn about the origins of this infectious music, move to the rhythm of the island and dance the night away in Town Center. Music provided by the chart-topping, and internationally-renowned, 11-piece band, Kadencia.

Event will take place in the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts outdoor plaza, but will be moved inside to the Miller Studio Theatre if there is inclement weather.

Event is FREE and open to the public. No advanced registration is required. Please email hplate@vbgov.com if you have any questions about this event.
