Bomba con Buya is a Chicago-based ensemble that aims to preserve and advance bomba. Developed during the 18th century among the island's African descendants, bomba is Puerto Rico's oldest surviving music and dance form. Buya means ‘good spirit’ in Taino, the language spoken among the island's indigenous population, and the group strives to embody this idea while sharing the tradition through concerts, workshops, and community engagement. Bomba con Buya released the album Buya Live in 2015.


Agúzate is an organization dedicated to the promotion of independent Latin music in Chicago, with an emphasis on Afro-Latin culture. What started as a small live salsa and latin-jazz calendar in 2003, has now evolved to a unique multi-arts production team in charge of some of the highest quality Latin music projects in the city.
