PUERTO RICAN ORIGINAL FINE ART by Lena del Sol Langaigne

"Patria" was completed in November ‘18. This piece was 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.

This piece was based off of a beautiful reference photo with permission from Astronomer and Visual Artist, Dr. José Francisco Salgado.
