Come for some awesome Puerto Rican art, food and music at this fundraiser benefiting Africaribe, a non-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the preservation of , research, promotion and development of the Puerto Rican and Caribbean cultures through, music, dance, theatre and other artisitic mediums. Then stay to enjoy their Monthly Bombazo that will be kicked off by the B-girls of Dirty Sneakers Crew & AfriCaribe.
For those of you who follow this blog, Africaribe was the organization who helped us with the Afro-Peruvian dance flash mob initiative from last year. They also participated in our Afro-Latino drum circle last January. I had the pleasure to interview Africaribe for CAN TV a few months ago. Here is an excerpt of that tv show:
I hope you can come and support this great organization that supports not only Puerto Rican culture in Chicago, but also cultural initiatives from other countries. Tonight for example, in addition to Bomba, they will have Hip Hop, R&B, Rumba, Salve, Salsa, and Belly Dance!
