The group is a Latin band that performs dynamic ethnic music of Puerto Rican & Afro-Caribbean roots, was born in 1996, five years after its founder Neftalí Rivera moved to Oregon. It arises with the purpose of spreading Puerto Rican music and culture throughout the Portland and the Willamette Valley community. During their first public performance at Pioneer Square in Portland, they were contracted by the Oregon Folk Department to play their music through a series of presentations in Portland Public Parks under the program “Music in the Park”. It was through this performance that Grupo Borikuas became to be known in Portland and surrounding cities. Ever since, Borikuas have been successfully performing in private events, conventions, and cultural activities such as “Celebration of National Hispanic Heritage”, “Celebrate Hillsboro”, “Latino Cultural Festival”, “Salsa en la Calle”, and “World Series Music Concerts” among others. Borikuas members are all from Puerto Rican descendants who authentically feel passion for their heritage, their music, and their culture. Sharing this passion as well as true friendship, through their presentations and performances, Ramón Cancel( lead guitar, Puerto Rican cuatro, and vocals), Aquiles Montas and Martín Vélez (percussion and vocals), and Neftalí Rivera (guitar and lead vocalist) give life to the Puerto Rican music and culture.
Passionate and prolific musicians with over two decades performing in the Northwest, Neftalí Rivera & Grupo Borikuas will take the stage at the Walters Cultural Arts Center (527 E. Main St., Hillsboro) on Friday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. Borikuas members Ramón Cancel, Victor Pizarro, Martín Velez, and Neftalí Rivera capture the essence of Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. Bright and charismatic performers, they bring their passion for their heritage, music, and culture to the stage.
Rivera inherited his musical talent from a long line of musicians and performers. “Everything around the house was full of music!” he said. “I come from a very large family, most of them musicians, including my father and grandfather…Very often we had family gatherings where everyone would play their instruments and show their progress.” Rivera began performing for audiences 50 years ago, and founded Grupo Borikuas in 1996 with original members Gerardo Varga, Victor Pizarro, and José Padin. Perceiving a void in the region’s cultural landscape, the group formed with the goal of promoting their musical heritage in the Northwest. “Little was known about the origin of our music,” said Rivera, “how it started, where it came from…[or about] our people and our culture at that time.”
Many of Rivera’s songs are dedicated to the island of Puerto Rico, and tell of the island’s beauty, culture, and people. Rivera’s own family have also provided inspiration, as he draws upon daily life experiences shared with his wife and children. Grupo Borikuas’ music conveys a rich poetic lineage, moving fluidly between love, loss, and joy, and covering an impressive repertoire that includes genres from a variety of Latin American cultures.
