Rumba Party: Afro-Cuban Drums, Dances & Songs | Berkeley

This free, participatory event has been a staple at La Peña Cultural Center for 12 years due to it’s incredible fun, and recurs every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.

Come enjoy the Afro-Cuban folkloric drums, dances, and songs of rumba. Rumba is the word used for a group of related, community-oriented, music and dance styles in Cuba.

Rumba developed in rural Cuba, with strong influences from African drumming and Spanish poetry and singing.

Come play, sing, dance, or simply watch and enjoy.
