“PUERTO RICAN-NESS”

These are very recognizable symbols of the Puerto Rican people.

The ‘pava‘ is the straw hat used by the ‘campesinos‘ while working the sugar cane fields using their ‘machetes‘.

The Puerto Rican flag is the utmost symbol of our Island.

The ‘mono-estrellada‘ … one star only.

The Statue of Liberty is also a very important symbol to the Puerto Rican diaspora.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to New York in search of a better life,

(my parents included in the 1930’s).

All memories etched in my mind, heart and soul!

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.
