Bulla en el Barrio:

Bulla En El Barrio is an effort to open a space in New York City to explore at a deeper level the bullerengue tradition born in Colombia in the Urabá and Caribbean region of the country. From its early days, bullerengue has been a tool for women to express themselves through music and dance; for this reason, women’s leadership and their power to engage communities into creative processes characterize bullerengue. This is why Bulla en el Barrio also aims to unite communities and encourage them to generate a spontaneous celebration of life through music, dance and the stories that these songs tell.

Transnational Bullerengue is an annual initiative dedicated to connecting Bullerengue Masters in Colombia with the active musical and cultural scene in USA, documenting the process and furthering the conversation about Afro-Colombians, their immeasurable heritage and contributions to Colombian society, and their cultural expressions. It is our goal to create a deep connection between NYC and the Bullerengue community in Colombia.
