What you'll do

We will drive through the town of Loiza , we will talk about some details that connect this town and Puerto Rico to Africa in more than one way. We will visit an renowned local artist in his creative space, where we will interact with him, asking question about his creative process and local history. We will have the chance to purchase artwork straight from the artist , who will share his view in regards to the process to create that piece as well as others. We will pass by the house of a very important family, who have have been promoting our African roots and heritage for many generations. You will also be able to support local food business at one of the traditional "kioskos" where they still cook in open fire, one of the trademarks exclusive to the town of Loiza.

Derek

I was raised in the town of Rio Grande , my Afro-Caribbean roots come from my great grandmother who was a beautiful black woman. Since I was little I have always had an interest in African arts and culture, from the live resources surrounding me, plus I have done independent studies about our African heritage as Puertoricans. I have found a direct line to the central region of Africa through art, music and food. I have found myself naturally sharing my interest and love with ones who come visit the island searching for out of the way extraordinary experiences.
