WEPA! Bomba Y Plena Flash Mob On Chicago’s Blueline!

I do not know about you but I happen to think flashmobs can be pretty cool… but I have never seen a Latino inspired flashmob.  That was until my old friend Hector (who happens to be a writer, singer, percussionist, educator, organizer and lover of all things Boricua) sent me this really awesome video of a group doing an impromptu performance on the Chicago Blueline… The groups is called BUYA and I will be researching them further but in the meantime…
Gozate esta…

  • Well done. I would love to see this group create a flash mob in a more public area with abundant pedestrian traffic and see the reaction of individuals who are unaware of the music genres that is as diverse as the Latino culture. Hopefully the rhythmic sounds would make some curious and discover more of the music and the culture online.
