Bomba Ashe

Skip on down to Connecticut’s Old State House for their annual free summer concert series. This year, concerts will be held on the East Lawn side beginning at noon. They’ll also be live-streamed to their Facebook and Youtube for the folks who can’t attend IRL.
Who’s playing?
Bomba Ashe features Puerto Rican bomba and plena music and dance. Part of the renowned musical dynasty La Familia Cepeda, legendary dancer Roberto Cepeda has carried on the family’s bomba y plena traditions since he was five years old. Dedicated to the teaching and preservation of African-based music from Cuba and Puerto Rico, Roberto leads the group and also sings, dances, and plays drums including the panderos of plena and the barriles of bomba. Bomba Ashé includes Roberto’s wife Gloria Lopez, an accomplished bomba dancer herself, and many of the most experienced bomba y plena musicians in the Northeast.
