Utilizing a performance/lecture approach RicanStruction presents a musical journey through the Spanish Speaking Caribbean and other regions of Latin America with significant African-Hispanic presence that provides a historical perspective on how three primary cultural and racial “currents” (African, Spanish & Native American) have influenced present day Latin American music and culture. A significant component of the presentation features a participatory segment for audience members utilizing the Afro Puerto Rican community building tradition of Bomba.

The performance troupe includes its director Osvaldo “Ozzie” Rivera, dancers Celia Benvenutti, Angela Lugo, Sheila Royster, singer/saxophonist Naim Edward as well as percussionists Chinelo Amen Ra, and Enrique Hernandez.
