BOMBAJERA: Ritmo, Carne Y Piel!
A Burlesque Homage to the Rhythms, Spirits and Flesh at the Transcultural Crossroads
Siete Potencias Africanas Gallery
777 O’Farrell St., SF
Burlesque, Music, DJs, Complimentary Beer, Wine and Refreshments, and Gallery Admission
Join us for a night of unprecedented magic evoking the pulse of bygone jazz houses, the old world glamour of tropical cabarets, and the collective journey towards ritual gathering and remembering through song, drum, and dance.
Capturing the tension between spirit and flesh, the collision between drum and dancer, and the urgency of jungle beats, city streets and sweaty sheets, Bombajera promises to be an unforgettable collaboration of burlesque dance, drum, song and storytelling. Dedicated to celebrating performers of color* and the stories their bodies tell and have told, Bombajera reflects the ever shortening distance between the sacred and profane.
