WNYC Studios and Futuro Studios present “La Brega: Stories of the Puerto Rican Experience”: a seven-part podcast series that uses narrative storytelling and investigative journalism to reflect and reveal how la brega has defined so many aspects of life in Puerto Rico. Available in English and Spanish.
From WNYC Studios and Futuro Studios, this season expands season one’s exploration into the culture, history, and soul of the island, this time through one of its most-cherished exports: music.
Hosted by Alana Casanova-Burgess, this season of "La Brega" looks at the Puerto Rican experience through eight iconic songs—taking us from the lyrical boleristas of the 1930s, to the electric salseros of the '70s, to the reggaetoneros of today who have taken music from the margins and made it a global sensation. Available in English and Spanish. This season of "La Brega" was made possible by the Mellon Foundation.
