A dance and music genre originated in Puerto Rico. Historical research suggests that it was first created by plantation slaves and workers in the 1800s. Bomba resembles many other neo-African dance/music styles with its call and response singing and squat drums. It is very traditional and popular in Puerto Rico, especially in the more rural areas and the smaller or less urban municipalities such as Loíza.
