A new Boricua generation is embracing their traditional musical expressions. Yerbabuena is the product of everything that leads to a contemporary Puerto Rican musical experience. It developed out of the need for cultural _expression, redefinition and re-appropriation of the Puerto Rican musical heritage by a new generation of Boricuas. Yerbabuena is an important part of the struggle to develop and promote identity through living Puerto Rican musical traditions such as bomba, plena and música jíbara. Yerbabuena reclaims the Puerto Rican music branded "folkloric," making gorgeous music that incorporates past and present.
