Based in New York City, KumbaCarey is a dynamic ensemble of Criollo Dominican music, which honors the preservation of important cultural traditions from the Dominican Republic. In 1999 the late Master percussionist Boni Raposo founded La 21 Division which delivered notions of the African heritage in the Dominican culture through lecture demonstrations, workshops and live performances, inside and outside of the New York State area. In February, 2007 Boni passed away leaving behind a legacy of learning from the men and women in the Dominican country side who have maintained traditions alive. The concert was captured using a multi-camera set up at SOB's, NYC, in night club ambient light.
