Bomba “is a musical expression created in Puerto Rico at the end of the 17th century by West Africans and their descendants who worked the colonial sugar plantations along the island’s coast. Through fiery drum rhythms and improvised dance, the cane workers released the feelings of anger, resistance, and sadness, which characterized their condition.”
A couple of our customers really loved the designs on one of our shirts but insisted that only a V-neck will do. For graphic t-shirts, that has never really been a deal breaker for me; if I like the design, I’m sold. However, I thought I’ll look into this more and see what sayeth the fashion world.

During warmer months, I put in at least fifty miles a week walking the streets of Chicago. I started walking years ago as a means to save on transportation costs. After several of weeks, I realized that walking to and from work was not only saving me money but I was going down pant sizes!
