About

BoomShake is a multicultural music and movement community program for all ages run by a collective of community-oriented artists. We draw on the knowledge and family traditions of participants to make music for creative expression, cultural survival, community building and social change. BoomShake is committed to being accessible to communities of color, people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and abilities by providing affordable and sliding-scale music classes and events.
