On Monday, November 14, Los Pleneros de la 21, a musical group from New York, visited Centennial.

The group travels to different cities, promoting Puerto Rican culture and presenting the history of the nation’s music that includes influences from other musical cultures. They performed during first period in the cafeteria and many of Centennial’s Spanish classes attended.

Junior Francis Kim said, “I found it interesting how the drummers used the rhythm of the dancer to make the beats.”

Senior David Uribe said, “I learned that even if I’m not familiar with a culture’s traditions, I can still participate in them and have fun!”
