Miami Dade College's The Koubek Center presents: Plena Es, Puerto Rican Bomba y Plena!

Dance Party in the garden featuring a live band, DJ'ed after party,dance instruction,specialty food, cocktail vendors & more.

Founded by Pierre Ramos in 2004, Plena Es plays the high-energy Caribbean dance music that is a touchstone for Puerto Rican identity. Bomba is the music created by West African slaves on Puerto Rico's sugar plantations, and Plena mixed bomba with indigenous Taíno music and jibaro music of the island's mountain farmers. Plena focuses on the story sung by a lead singer and chorus, backed by the rhythm of hand drums. Plena Es offers up both styles with its own Miami twist.
