About Taller Bula
Taller Bula is a SoCal based Puerto Rican Bomba workshop. Bomba’s percussion-centered, lively sound developed thanks to Puerto Rico’s African diaspora and heritage. Taller Bula’s director, Hector Luis Rivera (founder of Peace Inside Out), is dedicated to preserving this centuries-old art.
