TESTIMONIALS

"Retumba was perhaps the afternoon's music highlight with a high-energy set that took people through the sounds of Cuba and the Dominican Republic."

World Jam Festival
The Cincinnati Post


.....................................

"¡Retumba!, an Afro-Caribbean dance and percussion ensemble, emphasizing the strengths of women performing together as they celebrate the diversity and talent in the Bronx".

The City section
New York Times

.....................................

"Retumba's performance included Cuban guaguancos, Puerto Rican bombas, children's songs and dances, and West African rhythms and storytelling, presented with a rare freshness and warmth that powerfully affects audiences.

NY Folk Festival
NY Daily News

.....................................

"A feast for the eyes and ears; the dancers, dressed in traditional garb, speaking in African tongues such as Youruba and Ibo, as they do the Puerto Rican Bomba, and the Samba from Brazil".

The Daily Princetonian
