ABOUT TALLER BOMBALELE
Taller Bombalele was founded in September 2014 by Julia Cepeda, the granddaughter of Puerto Rican Bomba Patriarch Don Rafael Cepeda Atiles, and Denise Solis, founder/director of Las Bomberas de la Bahia. The Taller Bombalele community in the diaspora is committed to the Bomba values and practice that were handed down by the Cepeda family in the San Mateo de Cangrejo/Santurce region of Puerto Rico. Julia Cepeda and Denise Solis offer Bomba percussion, song, and dance classes and host Bombazos, Bomba performed informally in community, throughout the Bay Area. Classes are offered on Sunday afternoons at Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda, CA.
