Celebrando 2004 - Workshop with Paracumbe'
PRFDance & Paracumbe
Workshop on Bomba and Plena
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
Celebrando 2004 culiminated in a joint
performance on June 26-27, 2004 at the State Theatre in Austin Texas.
Enjoy these memories!
