Concert: Retumba

June 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

NYC Parks Arts, Culture & Fun and the Jazz Foundation of America presents Retumba, a multi-ethnic, all-female Afro-Caribbean dance and percussion ensemble whose electrifying presentations have been heard throughout the United States for almost 30 years. Retumba interweaves the dynamic power of Caribbean polyrhythms with the drama and excitement of African dance. Dressed in festive, traditional garb, this seasoned ensemble celebrates traditional Caribbean culture through engaging, staged performances of folkloric music such as guaguancó from Cuba, bomba and plena from Puerto Rico, and merengue from Dominican Republic. Noteworthy past engagements include performances at Alice Tully Hall and The Music Center of Los Angeles and a special concert for the United Nations.
