Bad Bunny Caribeño


The panelists, including Jade Power-Sotomayor, Asst. Professor of Theatre and Dance at the University of California-San Diego, Jossiana Arroyo, Professor of Latin American and Caribbean Literatures and Cultures at the University of Texas-Austin, Elyse Veloria, PhD student at Duke University, Alexandra Sánchez Rolón, PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania, and moderator Sarah Bruno of Rice University, discussed how Caribbean culture and aesthetics were central to Bad Bunny's music, videos, and performance. As well as how it engaged with a specifically Caribbean audience, in order to understand Bad Bunny as a distinctly Caribbean artist as opposed to a Latin American one who moved between these cultural frames.
