PUERTO RICAN ORIGINAL FINE ART by Lena del Sol Langaigne

This piece is the second from a series of small oil paintings I’m working on through the end of 2019 celebrating the cultural tradition of bomba y plena. It’s inspired by the powerful cultural storytelling element of dance. The musical tradition of bomba y plena has origins in West Africa and was brought to Puerto Rico in the early 17th century by West African slaves.

The songs and rhythms of bomba y plena were a form of spiritual and political expression to convey a sense of anger and sadness about their condition, while simultaneously serving as a form of healing and unity by using the art of dance to create community and identity.
