Bombazo Fandango

The Bombazo Fandango IV is set for tonight, February 8, 2014, from 7 pm to 11 pm, at the Epicospal Church of the Messiah, at 614 N Bush Street, in Santa Ana.  Admission is only $5!

BOMBAZO FANDANGO in Santa Ana!!! Bomba is one of the traditional musical genres from Puerto Rico, characterized by barrel drums (barriles), a shaker (maraca), sticks (cuas), call and response of song and the dynamic conversation between dancer and lead drummer (primo/subidor).
Bombazo= bomba gathering/conviviencia.

Son Jarocho is traditional music from Veracruz, Mexico characterized by stringed instruments called jaranas, the verses of traditional songs and a wooden stage (tarima) where the dancer creates music. Fandango=Son Jarocho gathering/conviviencia.

The Bombazo Fandango unites practitioners of these two genres from throughout their respective diasporas.

Special performance by Quenepas, children’s Bomba group led by Shefali Shah and Hector Lugo.

  1. The only thing we are missing in Santa Ana is a naked, dress in in the feathers, dance around the bonfire sucking on the bone marrow from the dead wooly mammoths.

    I have a feeling that would not be Jacko’s cup of tea.
