Music Genres - Influence of Europe on the music of Puerto Rico

Graphic and text by: Jeanette Serrat

The danza, plena, bomba and salsa music genres of Puerto Rico were influenced by the heritage of western music born in Europe. This includes the major and minor scales, music notation and much more. More specifically, the European waltz and mazurka genres had a very direct influence on the danza of Puerto Rico.
