Plena PuertorriqueƱa


It’s December 1.

The holiday season has already started.

It will be a bittersweet celebration in Puerto Rico. Yet, the Boricua spirit will never be vanquished.

This is a new song, dropping at the perfect time, with the perfect message. The Puerto Rican people shows their strength and resilience during difficult times.

“Que rico es poder decir que yo soy PuertorriqueƱo, que rico es poder decir que yo soy PuertorriqueƱo, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo …Ā 

Sube esa bandera al son de una rica plena … “




The plena originated inĀ Ponce, Puerto Rico around 1900

It was first heard in the neighborhood Barriada de la Torre, whose population consisted mostly of immigrants from St. Kitts, Tortola and St. Thomas, who had settled on the island since the late 1800’s. Originally, sung texts were not associated with the plena, which was rendered by guitar, accordion and pandero, but eventually, in 1907, singing was added.

Plena was often called theĀ periodico cantadoĀ or “sung newspaper” for the lower classes because it spread messages among people, similar to theĀ corridosĀ inĀ Mexico. The traditional center of plena was probablyĀ San AntĆ³n, aĀ barrioĀ ofĀ Ponce, although the black neighborhood ofĀ LoĆ­zaĀ is also mentioned as the heartland for the genre. Its popularity peaked in the 1920’s.



Yo Soy PuertorriqueƱo, Plena PuertorriqueƱa, con Manolo Ramos y Olga TaƱon

Letra y MĆŗsica: Manolo Ramos

Publicadora: Warner Chap

Cuando me preguntan que donde fue que nacĆ­, se me hace un nudo en la garganta y les digo asĆ­, nacĆ­ donde el cielo mostrĆ³ su primera estrella fue jugo de tamarindo mezclao con parcha, china y quenepa …

De Puerto Rico, Lelolelolelola, Borinqueeeen!

Que rico es poder decir que yo soy puertorriqueƱo, que rico es poder decir que yo soy PuertorriqueƱo, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo.

Si tu eres Boricua sientes igual que yo estoy sintiendo.

Le agradezco al cielo, porque fue en este lugar donde abrĆ­ mis ojos pa’ ver el sol y aprender amar rodeao de palmeras y el mas bello mar azul
