Top Bomba Performers to Attend Tucson Meet Yourself


Tucson Meet Yourself is promising big things this year!

Among the packed lineup for the annual celebration are three of New York City’s top Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba performers. Julia Gutierrez-RiveraNicky Laboy CajaDura and Nelson Matthew Gonzalez  will come to the desert to celebrate the living traditional arts of Southern Arizona’s and Northern Mexico’s diverse ethnic and folk communities.

As members of Grammy-Nominated Los Pleneros de la 21, Alma Moyó, and Ilú Ayé, these performers are regarded as some of the most versatile and premiere drummers, educators and dancers of Puerto Rican Bomba of their generation. Combined, they bring over fifty years of experience to the table

At Tucson Meet Yourself they will host a dance workshop that combines the dance techniques and formations of Puerto Rican Bomba with stretching, ice-breaker dance sequences and focused movements. This fun, fast-paced workshop is suitable for all levels and abilities, and both men and women are sure to enjoy this experience! Floor length dance skirts for the ladies will add to ambiance.  This two-hour dance class will get participants’ hearts pumping in a passionate, soul-electrifying way!

Julia, Nicky and Matthew will perform on Saturday and Sunday nights at Tucson Meet Yourself on October 14 and 15.
