Bomba con Buya is a Chicago-based ensemble that aims to preserve and advance Bomba. Developed during the 18th century among the island's African descendants, Bomba is Puerto Rico's oldest surviving music and dance form. Buya means ‘good spirit’ in Taino, and the group strives to embody this idea.
Just like at the festival gate, a donation to Square Roots supports Old Town School Of Folk Music financial aid programs and Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber Of Commerce farmers markets, small business programs, and neighborhood beautification projects.
