Bomba is more than

the beating of dancing drums

it is the awakening of our ancestors

the calling of spirits

the connection between

life and death

love and hate

esclavos sin cadenas

Bomba is organized chaos

it is raindrops on your rooftops

as the sun rises

el sabor in your arroz y habichuelas

the sweetness of plantains

Bomba is the laugh of your abuela

and la grita de tu madre

Bomba is a feeling

of light through dark nights

Bomba is healing

your past and present days

uniting both good and bad

Bomba is life
