Grupos de Musica Tradicional Puertorriquena
Puerto Rican Traditional Music Groups
Raices de Borinquen
Raíces de Borinquen is a group of volunteers dedicated to promote appreciation and preservation of traditional Afro-Puerto Rican music (Bomba & Plena), in the Washington DC Greater Metropolitan area. Members are from a variety of professions and cultures. Our group understands the importance of history, popular traditions and culture, and the research and education of foundational traditional knowledge as a mean of reaffirming the public of their own identity. We have invested in many connections and very important relationships in order to further our professional development, our knowledge, and add validity to the work of our group.
