Las Bomberas is one of only a handful of all-women’s Bomba ensembles to exist internationally. The ensemble is composed of Bay Area artists, educators, and activists. Their work, dedicated to expanding the Bomba tradition by highlighting the living cultural form and its legacy of resistance that was born in the sugarcane plantations of Puerto Rico by enslaved persons, also simultaneously highlighting the important role women play in supporting our communities. Las Bomberas have performed nationally for educational institutions, cultural centers, cultural festivals, and in two commissioned original works; don't miss this exclusive engagement!
