Today we explore a medley of two bomba songs, La Llevo en Mis Venas (I Carry It in My Veins) and Bambulé a Paré (The Bámbula Is Happening) by the group Tambuyé. To help us contextualize the songs we interviewed the the Manager and Director of Taller Tambuyé, Marién Torres López. Marién and the artists of Tambuyé reaffirm in this medley the Black heritage present in the practice of Puerto Rican bomba in all of its wonderful dimensions, music-related, dance-related, healing-related, you name it.

Marién is an incredible artist. She is also an instructor at the Dance Department, Universidad Sagrado Corazón, a Folklorist, Dancer, Musician, Drummer, Choreographer, Singer, and Cultural Events Manager.
