Celebrando 2002 with Los Pleneros de la 21
What an experience it was to bring National Heritage Fellow
Juan Gutierrez, Tito Matos, and Los Pleneros de la 21 to Austin for the first
time for a Plena music and dance workshop, and joint performance with our
performing company "Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance".
Funding by the National Endowment, the City of Austin, Texas Commission on the
Arts, and the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, and others made it all possible.
Enjoy the memories of the Master Workshop/Rehearsals,
the Big Radio Interview,
and THE SHOW!!
Beyond the thrill of learning Plena at a new level
-- and performing with them -- we also experienced for the first time the
true tradition of Plena.
We were invited to perform with them for a live radio program. We were
(NERVOUS!!!) because we had NO IDEA what they would sing! It was an
unforgettable, 1st time experience in the improvised call and response
tradition that is Plena. Enjoy the photos!
