The incredible BombaYo:
BombaYo emerges from the streets and schoolyards of the Bronx, where salsa and hip hop were born. Under the direction of Jose L. Ortiz aka Dr. Drum and Melinda Gonzalez, this group of teens brings youthful energy to a centuries old Afro Puerto Rican music and dance tradition. BombaYo starts from within. At the core is a connection to the soul, where drum and dance become one. African inspired call and
response singing complete the synergy.
And the amazing poetry of:
The Powerful Bonafide Rojas
Nuyorican Poet/Activist Papoleto Melendez
