Zona De Bomba
Zona de Bomba was created in Miami by a collective of musicians passionate
about promoting the Afro-Boricua tradition of Bomba, and is currently the only
group in South Florida dedicated to this musical expression. Founded on
rhythms brought to Puerto Rico by way of Africa, Bomba is related to many
afro-rooted styles across the Caribbean and Latin America. Drums, voices,
and dance make up the dynamic of Bomba, and the magic truly happens when
dancer and drum connect.
Behind the idea to bring Bomba to South Florida are a group of musicians
representing different countries, backrounds, and generations. The lineup
includes some of Miami’s finest percussionists, including Grammy Award winner
Jose Javier “JJ” Freire (Bacilos, ¡Suenalo!) and Kenneth Metzker (Lanzallamas
Monofonica, Shakira). Led by musical director Charley Rivas, Zona de Bomba
celebrates our musical heritage through performances that are definitely a blast!
