Pelham Art Center opens its fall 2019 program of Folk Art events highlighting artistic traditions of different cultures through performance and hands-on workshops with BombaYo! Afro-Puerto Rican this Sunday, September 22 from 2-4 PM. The event is free and open to all ages.

Sunday's event will feature the internationally-acclaimed performer/educator and Bronx native Jose Ortiz, a.k.a. Dr. Drum, to lead the Bomba music celebration. Bomba is an African-derived music and dance tradition developed in Puerto Rico. With call-and-response singing, drumming and dance, BombaYo will kindle the joy of this Afro-Puerto Rican art form and ignite the ancestral rhythms of Bomba.
