About the Event

Bamboula Journeys: Retrospective Indigenous Caribbean Afrakan Arts (RICAA) invites you on a creative immersive journey into the dynamic realm of contemporary and futurist art collections, meticulously curated by QM Dr. ChenziRa Davis Kahina. Featuring paintings, photographs, sculptures, textiles, and other mixed media artwork from the Caribbean, Central and South Americas, Afraka and beyond, Bamboula Journeys pays homage to the resilience and ingenuity of Caribbean and Afrakan artists whose visionary works transcend temporal and geographical boundaries creating opportunities for inspiring intergenerational and transcultural creative arts and technology.

The Bamboula Journeys exhibition serves as a vibrant celebration and observance of the intersection between Indigenous Caribbean and Afrakan artistic expressions, highlighting the kaleidoscope of cultural richness and creative arts diversity.  Bamboula is an Afrakan-rooted cultural heritage and spiritual tradition that interweaves the tapestries of the arts, communication, precise sciences, sacred spirituality and beyond through creative arts of dance, music, theatre, and more.  Bamboula as a performative  art remains associated with dance forms and musical rhythms that represent methods for communication for uprisings, celebrations, sensual expressions, and social justice actions amongst free and formerly enslaved Afrakans throughout the Caribbean Americas.

Immerse yourself in the captivating energy of Bamboula Journeys where each artwork tells a story of ancestral resiliency in cultural heritage and artistic innovation in contemporary times. Journey with us through the enchanted waters of creativity, liberation,  and exploration, and rediscover the transformative power of a cornucopia of visual, performative, and digital art sharing heritage narratives of cultural, healing, arts, technology, and spirituality (CHATS).

Join us as we embark on a transcendent voyage through time and space, honoring legacies of the past, embracing the vitality of the present, and envisioning the limitless future possibilities of artistic liberation through Bamboula Journeys.
