Group 4

  • Puerto Rico’s diversity has shaped the islands music combining elements of the African, Spanish, and Caribbean culture.

  • IPRAC has been the gathering place to Puerto Rican artists from all over.


Navi jazz

Navi- Jazz

  • This year IPRAC hosted its third annual Navi-Jazz concert at mambo café.

  • Some of this years artists included Grammy winner Paoli Mejias as well as Antonio Quijano, EndelDueno, and Edgar Abraham along with his Latin Jazz project.


Why important

Why important?

  • Music is important to the Puerto Rican community because it allows Puerto Ricans to express themselves and translate aspects of every day life and culture into a form that all Puerto Ricans can relate to.

  • IPRAC reference point for Puerto Rican musical expression.

  • Music preserves culture and reminds people of their homeland.


Group 4

  • Music leads to dancing, which leads to interaction.

  • It is another important form of communication that can connect people .


The cuatro

The Cuatro

  • The Cuatro is the national instrument of Puerto Rico. It belongs to the lute family of chordophones (string instruments).

  • It is smaller then a guitar and larger than a mandolin.

  • It is thought to be derived from the guitar and is unique to Puerto Rico.

  • called cuatro for originally having four strings.


Group 4

  • The cuatro was the instrument of the Jibaro, and is used in the singing of Puerto Rican christmas songs.


Genres of pr music

Genres of PR music

  • Early music genres consisted of bomba, and jibaro music

  • Carribean influence: bolero, merengue, and salsa

  • Modern- day: Reggaeton

  • Classic Latin Jazz


Problem

Problem

  • The problem with Puerto Rican music and any music at that is the fact that as time passes it becomes harder to preserve this aspect of culture.

  • It is important that Puerto Rican youth and even non – Puerto Rican youth continue to keep some of these genres alive so that they exist in the future.


The taino project

The Taino Project

School-based program that allows students to work directly with professional artists

Project occurs during Spring Semester

Teaches students art while making cultural connections with the Taino people of Puerto Rico

Not much is known, even less taught about the Taino People of Puerto Rico

PRAA addresses this problem by implementing The Taino Project within school curriculum


The three kings project

The Three Kings Project

  • Begins in October with 6 weeks of hands-on arts workshops in public schools

  • This project combines arts learning with culture and history

  • Students learn from local artists about the tradition of the Three Kings Day

  • At the end of the program there is a traditional Three Kings Day celebration for the whole family

History timeline

History & Timeline

  • Afro-Caribbean : People of African Ancestry who reside in the Caribbean Region.

  • During the mid-16th century, demand for African labor increased

  • Slaves worked hard 6 days a week with Sundays off being their only free day

  • From their gathering music genre, bomba evolved (1800).

  • Bomba was a way of making themselves feel better during their difficult times.

  • Bomba is a relationship between the drummer and dancer.

  • Rules are followed, but different rhythms can be added.

  • AfriCaribe has been intact since the year 2000 and has had performances for 11 years now.
