Plena Puertorriqueña

~MANOLO AND OLGA~

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 Puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo … 

Sube esa bandera al son de una rica plena … “

#YoNoMeQuito

The plena originated in 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 the periodico cantado or “sung newspaper” for the lower classes because it spread messages among people, similar to the corridos in Mexico. The traditional center of plena was probably San Antón, a barrio of Ponce, although the black neighborhood of Loíza is also mentioned as the heartland for the genre. Its popularity peaked in the 1920’s.

Yo Soy Puertorriqueño, Plena Puertorriqueña, con Manolo Ramos y Olga Tañon

Letra y Música: Manolo Ramos

Publicadora: Warner Chap

Cuando me preguntan que donde fue que nací, se me hace un nudo en la garganta y les digo así, nací donde el cielo mostró 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 puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, 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 abrí mis ojos pa’ ver el sol y aprender amar rodeao de palmeras y el mas bello mar azul

Manolo

PORTA CARIBE

I was born in Santurce, a suburb of San Juan.

I grew up in Río Piedras, another suburb of San Juan.

I went to college in Ponce, the south region.

This is the area where I spent four of my formative years …

… and “formed” I was!

I completed my bachelor’s degree at the Catholic University of Ponce.

It was here where I met the love of my life way back in 1969.

The memories are countless.

They all, good and bad, have a warm spot in my heart.

I became an adult in the south region of Puerto Rico!

I hope you enjoy this video and understand why my heart stays behind.

~~Puerto Rico’s South Region~~

Porta Caribe

Puerto Rico’s South Region is European Styled … especially the architecture.

Ponce, Puerto Rico’s second-largest city, was founded in the late 17th century.

The city experienced a commercial boom in the 19th, then declined so quickly that no one had time to tear anything down. The center of town is crowded with wedding-cake colonial mansions, arrayed in a procession of balconies, balustrades, and bas-relief.
