Welcome to the eleventh annual celebration of BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest!
A NOTE FROM THE FESTIVAL’S PRODUCER
Welcome to the eleventh annual celebration of BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest! We are extremely honored to celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage, Arts and Culture. This year, in celebration of its 11th anniversary, BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest 2016 will feature the Dominican Republic as a guest country, and its theme is based on two famous songs from the Puerto Rican Composer, Rafael Hernández: “Linda Quisqueya” and “Preciosa”. Rafael Hernández shared in these songs, “Quisqueya la tierra de mis amores…preciosa por ser un encanto por ser un Edén”. BORIMIX 2016 events will feature both Puerto Rican and Dominican arts, culture, traditions and folklore as well as celebrate the relationship between the two islands.
SEA is working with many institutions committed to the Puerto Rican and Dominican arts and culture, and thanks to their collaboration, we will be presenting events throughout New York City in film, theatre, the visual arts, music, dance and more during the month of November!
SEA will continue to present the BORIMIX Award recognizing and honoring artists who have made a significant contribution to the arts as well as institutions, politicians and community leaders who have supported and actively advocated for Puerto Rican, Dominican and Latino Arts and Culture in NYC.
We are very much looking forward to this year’s festival. We hope you will join us!
To the public and our collaborators and sponsors: ¡Gracias!
