Escuela de Bomba y Plena Tata Cepeda (EBPTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Bomba and Plena as representative elements of the rich culture of Puerto Rico through study, teaching, cultural event production and artistic presentations. For the EBPTC, tradition is not rendered through innovation. With this in mind, our activities are focused on providing the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Bomba and Plena, essential tools for the creation and evolution of these two important genres in accord with the experiences and realities of the present. In this way, we maintain the validity of Bomba and Plena - which without a doubt contributes to the conservation of these genres for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. Our mission is to promote our culture - particularly Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena - through activities that are educationally focused and serve as a tool that allows the extension of camaraderie, prevention of violence and foster peaceful creation and recreation and by doing so contribute to the increased quality of life of all. Please help us make a difference in our community by contributing to the success of this superb and one and only cultural event. Your assistance will be beneficial to not only our students, but to families and communities in Florida.
