Raquel Z. Rivera: "New York Bomba: Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and a Bridge Called Hait

Great lecture on the connections between the Afro descendent music in the Caribbean. Mention is made of the kalinda in both Cuba and Trinidad. The Haitian connection to bomba is highlighted. Also, the speaker links the PR bomba to the belair/bele of Martinique (which, according to her, is the same), and identifies the different names for the genre in other islands.
