This past weekend, Sanse takes Orlando 2019 featured a wide variety of Puerto Rican fine arts and crafts in the following categories: clay, digital art, drawings & pastels, fiber, glass, graphics & printmaking, jewelry, leather, metal, painting, photography, sculpture, watercolor and wood. Walking by the artists and artisans was a cultural feast , we sampled some fine “polvorones”, decadent moist cakes and hot sauces in different tropical flavors including mango ,tamarind, guava and papaya. We experienced singing and dancing with a group of instrument makers while they played their handcrafted panderos and right in the middle of the huge tent we saw the legendary Harold Hernandez improvising folk music as he played his own fine handmade string instruments. It’s touching to know that our Puerto Rican artists and artisans living in Florida represent our people in such positive and creative ways. We left with a huge sense of pride after watching Ednita Nazario’s exquisite show and many other great singers . We can’t wait to experience Sanse 2020 next year!
