Celebrando 2004 - Workshop with Paracumbe'

PRFDance & Paracumbe

Workshop on Bomba and Plena
of Southern Puerto Rico

How exciting it was -- after years of workshops, mentorship, friendship, and many, many fun shopping trips to bookstores across La Isla -- to bring Nelie and Paracumbe to Austin to directly train "Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance," our performing company of dancers and musicians. This workshop was part of this year's production, Celebrando 2004, a multiphase project that was two years in the making! As part of that project, Paracumbe provided a master-level workshop of traditional dance, percussion and song that taught the traditional Bomba and Plena styles of Southern Puerto Rico. Celebrando 2004 culiminated in a joint performance on June 26-27, 2004 at the State Theatre in Austin Texas. Enjoy these memories!
