BomPlenazo 2016 is the 9th biennial celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican music and dance, and is the leading bomba and plena event in the continental United States. Under the theme of Entre Generaciones (“between generations”), which reflects on the intergenerational aspect of the art form with an emphasis on the elders of the tradition and the younger generation of practitioners, the four-day event will feature more than 60 artists in panel discussions, school concerts, main stage concerts, workshops, a film premiere and more. The events take place in a variety of venues including the Hostos Center, Pregones Theater, the Bronx Music Heritage Center, and the Rincón Criollo Cultural Center, popularly-known as “La Casita de Chema.”
