Exploring Puerto Rico

Written by Julie Greiner
Before an evening on the town, one must learn of the heritage of the Puerto Rican music. Danza and Bomba Music are the flesh and blood of Puerto Rican Folklore. French romanticism influence and Spanish heritage formed Danza music which was performed during "soirees" by elegantly attired ladies and gentlemen doing intricately flowing dance routines. The island's national anthem, La Borinquena is Puerto Rico's best known danza. Bomba is characterized by strong, rhythmic dance-oriented sounds accentuated by heavy percussion and singing. Puerto Rico nights are much more than just tropical sunsets. You may choose from sophisticated nightclubs, casinos, dance and
opera or informal local bands and the mellow rhythms of latin jazz.
