Julia Gutiérrez-Rivera

Meet Julia

As the youngest daughter of Los Pleneros de la 21’s founder, I grew up dancing and watching bomba and plena luminaries, including Eugenia Ramos, Tito Cepeda, Marcial Reyes and Paco Rivera.  I began formal bomba lessons in 1989 and my passion for music, dance and cultural work was cultivated through several years of training with the NY-based Bomba and Plena Ambassadors, and at age 10 I debuted my first official performance with the group.  I am a proud member of the new generation of Los Pleneros de la 21’s staff, performing and teaching ensembles.

I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras and a Masters in Nonprofit Management from Milano, the New School in Nonprofit Management and Urban Policy.
