A powerful intergenerational & cross-cultural ensemble of inspirational women and leaders come together for a unique event featuring original and soul-stirring performances of traditional Bombas, Plenas and Salves from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Through their talents, they convey their stories and embody the countless contributions of the many women who have formed the endurance and electrifying essence of our Afro-Caribbean expressions. This event will inspire our next generations of cultural leaders through interactive performances with audiences, inspiring stories and moving songs, drum and dance!
