¿Bailamos? ¡Así! The National Museum of the American Latino proudly invites you to join us for Bámbula: The Legacy of Tata Cepeda. Margarita “Tata” Cepeda and the Cepeda family have been nationally recognized for promoting and preserving the traditions of Puerto Rico bomba music and dance. Learn firsthand from Tata herself how bomba has influenced culture around the world in an on-stage panel discussion of bomba as an artform and Tata’s continued influence over the culture, featuring the Cepeda family and Escuela de Bomba. Then dance to your heart’s content! Don’t know how to dance bomba yet? Tata will teach you! Learn how to dance bomba and Tata and Escuela de Bomba as we dance through the museum to the Molina Family Latino Gallery where the National Museum of the American Latino will showcase one of Tata’s very own bomba dresses and the National Museum of American History will showcase objects out of storage representing the musical legacy of bomba and plena, Tata Cepeda, and Puerto Rico.
