Fabiola How Through music we are exposed to gender Introduction Bomba y Plena Bomba y Plena Plena Bomba Tanta vanidad, tanta hipocrecía
si tu cuerpo después de muerto
pertenece a la tumba fría

Y con esto me depido
adiós mi línda mujer
nos volveremos a ver
donde no haya hipocrecía
aunque sea en la tumba fría
yo siempre te habré de querer Prepara el molino
empieza a moler
La caña en la Hacienda Isabel,
que la Hacienda molía otra vez Salsa Danza Danza is the most elevated Puerto Rican musical expression. Since the 19th centruy the Danza has been present in the Puerto Rican culture. however now a days is very different of what originaly was. It's dance is very structured and every steep is calculated. The Danzas are either romantic or festive, that's why almost every piece is about a woman. Danza Although usually grouped together, bomba and plena are actually two entirely different types of music that are coupled with dance. Bomba and plena are percussion-driven musical traditions from Puerto Rico that move people to dance. Often mentioned together as though they were a single musical style, both reflect the African heritage of Puerto Rico, but there are basic distinctions between them in rhythm, instrumentation, and lyrics. Bomba and plena are defining musical sounds of the Afro-Puerto Rican population. These Afro-Puerto Rican musical traditions have also enjoyed an active life in New York City and other communities in which Puerto Ricans have settled. Plena developed from bomba music around the beginning of the 20th century in southern Puerto Rico Bomba is purely African origin, whereas Plena blends elements from Puerto Ricans' wide cultural backgrounds, including music that the Taíno tribes may have used during their ceremonies Historical background:
Salsa originated in Puerto Rico with Rafael Cortijo and Ismael Rivera contrary to what many people belive, that it originated in Cuba. But even if salsa wasn’t created in Cuba it wouldn’t be salsa without the Cuban Son. Salsa started having as background the Plena that also was created in Puerto Rico. In the 60’s the salsa singers of Puerto Rico went to New York to have a new career so they expanded the music. And it kept expanding and developing till today. In the song “La Pela” of Marvin Santiago, he talks about giving his partner or his wife a beating because she was with another man. This states that he wants to abuse her only because she took a decision, yet that doesn’t give the excuse for beating her. This is an example of discrimination he puts her through because she is only a woman and she is less than him so he can beat her up whenever he feels like doing it. That is why he is discriminating the women because he is putting them and it sounds as if they were less than men which isn’t true. In the song “Que le den Candela” of Celia Cruz (one of the most influential salsa singers) it talks about this” Te exige que tu le laves,Que lo vistas y lo calces,Y si acaso tu protestas, Se indigna y quiere pegarte” this reflects the same thing than in the song “La pela” that men can abuse of women because they feel greater than them more powerful than them and this is discriminating them as if they were less than a man but it is obvious that man and woman are equal there isn’t one more important than the other. So this was the norm in that time. salsa: "la pela" The "danza" doesn't discriminate with gender, it is more of a talk between two people of opposite sex because in that time it was prohibited. That is the reason almost all the danzas talked about the women and their beauty. An example of this forbidden interaction between the sexes is the danza "no me toques" wich exhorts the women to leave him alone because their love is not accepted. Salsa: "Que le den Candela" In the song “Que cosa tan linda” of Oscar D’Leon he discriminates the woman in a way that isn’t seen throughout but in the title and also in the chorus when he says “Que cosa tan linda” he refers to a woman, so with the word “cosa” which means thing, he is saying that woman is a thing and a thing or in Spanish “cosa” is always a possession so it talks about the woman like a possession as a thing and not as a human being even if he is saying that she is beautiful and is complimenting her. Salsa: "Que Cosa tan linda La Pela Que le den Candela "Que cosa tan linda" "No me toques" Conclusion
