Bamboula Dance

 The Bamboula dance reflects the rich culture and traditions of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

We love this video of the Bamboula dancers and the ongoing tradition that preserves the stories and lessons of our ancestral past. Listen and watch the dance, as these women talk about the history of Bamboula and its role in the struggle for freedom and equality throughout Caribbean. Learn how they keep the Bamboula tradition going, proud to be not only an American but an American Virgin-Islander.
