Valentine’s Bomba-Gram: Your Love in Verse and Song

Before we were sold flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, and diamonds as ways to express our love, people used their voices and literally sang their hearts out. Those songs of love touched not only their intended recipient, but everyone who heard them.  This Valentine’s Day, and as part of our ongoing-fundraising efforts, Segunda Quimbamba invites you to return to that tradition of love in verse and song that keeps on giving:

Send that special person in your life a Bomba-gram – our social-media friendly, folkloric rendition of the singing-telegram that exclusively celebrates your love while strengthening our cultural traditions and Segunda Quimbamba’s efforts. This is truly an exponential way to say “I love you!”

What is a Bomba-Gram?

A Bomba-Gram is a social-media friendly, folkloric rendition of the singing-telegram. A Bomba-gram by Segunda Quimbamba exclusively celebrates your love while strengthening our cultural traditions and the efforts of our folkloric organization. This is truly an exponential way to say “I love you!

To view our sample of a Wink or Bronze level Bomba-Gram verse click here.

The members of Segunda Quimbamba will record a personalized or customized message to the rhythms of Bomba y Plena in either English or Spanish, and deliver it via email to you or your loved one as a digital video by noon on February 14th.  The copy of the video you receive is yours to keep and/or share with others as you wish.
