About this event
Enjoy live music and dance in the Museum's Stanley Field Hall, featuring a vibrant performance of Bomba featuring local group La Escuelita Bombera de Corazón.
Based in the historic Humboldt Park Puerto Rican community, La Escuelita Bombera de Corazón was established in 2009 by Ivelisse “Bombera de Corazón” Diaz. As an African and Puerto Rican diasporic performing arts school, La Escuelita is committed to the preservation of Bomba percussion (buleo, maraca, cúa), dance (baile), vocals (canto), and history.
This event is part of our celebration of Latinx Heritage Month and work done by Latinx staff and collaborators at the Field.
