The term Batey is a colloquial term that refers to a Bomba Dance, where (historically) baptisms and marriages were celebrated, and rebellions planned. At these gatherings, the sounds of drums called "barriles," typically made of empty codfish or rum barrels, drew the crowd into a circle. Dancers took turns challenging the drums, creating a dialog with their movements that the solo drummer answered.* *http://www.prfdance.org/bomba.htm For more information on the Bay Area Bomba y Plena Workshop or Shefali Shah and Hector Lugo go to : https://bomba-aguacero.org/5-2/bomba-y-plena-workshop/
