iCU (Now I See What You Mean) OIIR Intercultural Dialogue Series presents

Puerto Rico with Music

The Caribbean island of Puerto Rico often referred to as the Island of Enchantment, is a cultural mix of West African, Taino and Spanish influence. The mixing of these traditions for over 500 years has resulted in the very rich musical genres of Bomba, Creole, Plena and Salsa. Come and enjoy an evening with accomplished Puerto Rican musicians as they share the history, rhythms and flavor of Puerto Rican music.

Sponsored by OIIR - IE, La Casa Cultural Latina, Puerto Rico Student Association and CLACS
