35 years of voicing opposition through music, art, and moxie
The kaleidoscopic lineup planned for La Peña's 35th anniversary party, which also serves as the celebration for the newly designated La Peña Day, is a fitting tribute to the center's accomplishments. A Friday night concert of infectious cumbia beats by Chilean musician-activists Chico Trujillo. A free Saturday street festival featuring dancers, classes, and singing. And, later that evening, a performance by Las Bomberas de la Bahia, local percussionists who play classic Puerto Rican bomba music. Las Bomberas, by the way, is an all female group.
