CTMD has the pleasure to announce, Retumba, a multi-ethnic, all-female Afro-Caribbean dance and percussion ensemble joins us in part of the “CTMD in the Parks Series” this spring. Retumba interweaves the dynamic power of Caribbean polyrhythms with the drama and excitement of African dance. Dressed in festive, traditional garb, this seasoned ensemble celebrates traditional Caribbean culture through engaging, staged performances of folkloric music such as guaguancó from Cuba, bomba and plena from Puerto Rico, and merengue from the Dominican Republic.
