Bomba y Plena: La Música Negra
The marginalized black music of Puerto Rico miraculously survived and
has come to hold a special place of dignity and community expression for
Puerto Ricans on and off the island. The elegant Bomba is the most African
of Puerto Rican artistic genres, and the Plena - with its labor roots - has
risen to truly represent the Puerto Rican working class in unrivaled fashion.
