THE CONGA & THE STRAW HAT

Two of Puerto Rican symbols

Our music wouldn’t be the same without the conga.

Our culture wouldn’t be the same without the ‘pava’.

The conga, like the palitos, is an ancient musical instrument not originating in Puerto Rico. The conga drum was adapted from Africa where it began as solid, hollowed out log with a nailed-on skin.

It took various shapes and sizes to vary its sound.

There are four different sizes of conga drums. The largest is called the tumba, and the smallest is called the niño. Some artists use a set of all four sizes.

The pava is a straw hat made out of the leaves of the Puerto Rican hat palm.

It is normally associated with the Puerto Rican jíbaro.
