Música Jíbara: Identidád Boricua

Música Jíbara was threatened on the island in the 50s, but has staged an amazing comeback and is continuing to grow. Although it maintains the traditional string/percussion instrumentation, the level of virtuosity on those instruments is astonishing and a source of much national pride.

Co-presented in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival
