BOMBA YOUTH APPRENTICESHIP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AFTER SCHOOL MATTERS
SPRING Season 2023
Bomba Youth Ensemble Program @Prosser | Teens ASM
Teaching Artists: Noni Lazú and Quincy Raggs
Mondays and Wednesdays | 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Every other Friday–6:00pm to 7:30pm (Bomba Lab)
Through this program, apprentices will explore Bomba as an artistic language, and historically, as a movement of resistance and cultural affirmation. During the 10 week long program, apprentices are welcomed to explore storytelling through bomba singing and history, develop and practice percussion and rhythmic skills, and explore dance movements and “piquetes” (improvisational dance moves) from different parts of the Island as they are passed down from generation to generation.
