Genre: Bomba, Palos
Join Legacy Women as we pay musical tribute to ten of NYC’s leading female arts and cultural organizers, performers, event producers, educators, and cultural advocates who have promoted and advanced the musical legacies of Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. The evening will feature a live music concert in Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba and Afro-Dominican Palos by Legacy Women, and a slideshow highlighting the role our special honorees have played in the Caribbean music and cultural scene of New York City.
Sounding her legacy
Legacy Women is an all-women’s traditional musical group rooted in Afro-Dominican and Afro-Puerto Rican traditions. Our women are the next generation of NYC’s most gifted drummers, singers, and dancers of Afro-Caribbean music, including Palos, Congos, Slaves, and Bomba, the Afro-Indigenous roots music of the Caribbean. Our group makes music that celebrates the fiery, nurturing, defiant, yet wise touch that mujeres (women) have. We recognize that we possess feminine power that holds up our community, and honor the immense contributions women make everyday. Our performances are only part of our process of building sisterhood with each other and imbuing our audiences with joy and strength. Featuring original and traditional songs, our sultry and booming vocals, precision drumming and expressive dances encourages everyone to dance and celebrate heritage.
