Why A Cuatro
in San Francisco?
Report by Don Jibaro Barbanegra
The Puerto Rican Community in the Bay area appears to have nailed
down the mysteriously basic, and yet intrinsically difficult
principle of how to keep Boricuas working together. They have a
festival... a cuatro Festival, that is.
The "Club Puertorriqueño de San Francisco" has successfully
established the tradition to be followed for years to come.These Puerto Ricans have established the
quintessential Puerto Rican tradition in the Bay Area... honor to
Puerto Rico's National Musical Instrument... the Cuatro. Dig the
