BUMP: The Triangle



Bump+logo+jpegBUMP empowers youth through music of the African Diaspora. These music traditions are recognized as innovative and influential, and through our programs youth explore the deep connections between the music, history, culture and meaning. Since 2014, BUMP has offered Triangle children and youth programs that tie these all together across the global span of the Diaspora. Our workshops provide hands-on activities that engage kids™ imagination, foster their creativity, and boost their cognitive development. African American music is the foundation of American music and our experiential learning programs bring this heritage to all youth. www.bumpthetriangle.org  BOOK BUMP The Triangle
