Bomba Con Buya

Performed in Sofar Chicago

Buya means ‘good spirit’ in Taino, the language spoken among Puerto Rico’s indigenous population. We strive to embody this idea. Through performances, workshops, and community engagement, Buya aims to preserve and advance the bomba tradition. This includes artistic dialogue with historians and performers from Puerto Rico, and collaborative work with various Chicago-based musicians and dancers from Belize (Laruni Hati), Haiti (Tamboula), and Mexico (JaroChicanos).
