Posters - PR Culture - African influence in Puerto Rico

The influence of African culture, brought directly from Africa
by slavery, runs VERY deep in the culture of PR.

Some towns like Loiza near San Juan have preserved this well.

It remains in the blood, food, superstitions, African gods, myths and music:

Bomba is both a traditional dance and musical style of Puerto Rico.

Its origins are rooted in the island's history of African slavery
but today has evolved into a community expression of Afro-Puerto Rican
culture.

While Bomba can be used as the generic name for a number of rhythms,
it is truly about a creative, interactive relationship between dancers,
percussionists and singers.

Today it's practiced as a communal activity
in its centers of origin in Loíza, Santurce, Mayagüez and Ponce.
Also, Puerto Rican migrants have brought the tradition to some
parts of the US mainland. It has surely influenced some musical
genres in the US too.
