We bring the South American spice, excitement, and passion from our Latin culture to the playa; with open arms, Tierra Bomba’s purpose is to spread these elements to the Burning man community.
Tierra Bomba is Colombian made yet diverse in its Latin roots. Powered by Latinos under a Colombian influence, we are a camp hosting salsa, freshly brewed coffee and latin inspired events throughout the week. Attracting passers-by and welcoming them into a tropical oasis where they can get a taste of our rich and diverse culture.
camp signature highlights
Beyond all our fun activities, we want to incorporate in our camp a Latin-Healing tent, an area designated to a conscious approach of our culture where we can demonstrate the magical skills of our ancestors and their healing powers. We'll devote this space to recreate traditional rituals, ceremonies from the deepest of our sacred Amazonic jungle; Cacao ceremonies, sound healing meditations, acupuncture, yoga and readings from ancestral Mayan findings. Led and designed by Fahad Khan, M.D. who believes that a life of vitality is possible when modern medicine is blended with ancient & holistic therapies. The activities will be focusing on the transformation of body and mind with a dose of mysticism mixing modern medicine.
Cafetero Coffee Station will open from 10 AM - 1 PM every day, Cafecito-Fuel-Station. Cafecito stands for 'small coffee'. Inspired on a traditional cart delivering coffee mainly to the Colombian working class, we re-imagined and morphed the concept into a wooden station with typical coffee plantation props; lots of colorful exotic fruits and flowers where we serve our freshly brewed coffees daily. Attached to the cart, we have connected a bicycle, as you pedal it grinds the coffee beans. This interactive feature engages burners to get off their bikes and onto our Cafesito bike to grind their beans for the freshest cup of coffee on the playa.
Every afternoon the Cafesito-Station becomes the “whatever-whenever-station” an open canvas for Bombitos to get creative and do offerings of their choice, grabbing burners attention and getting them off their bikes to participate.
