Arts

There is no evidence of artistic activity from the pre-colonial period. With the arrival of the Spaniards, the dominant taste and style of the Iberian Peninsula moved to the island between the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century. Santo Domingo, founded in 1498, became the center of art and culture, the expressions of which are revealed in the Gothic and Baroque architecture which imprint a typically Spanish originality in churches, chapels and altars. Only in the eighteenth century the Jesuits they turned, in the construction of their missions, to a sober and severe style. National figurative art, therefore devoid of the strong Spanish and Catholic ancestry of the colonial era, can be talked about starting from the nineteenth century, when independence became the driving force for the creation of a national identity. At the end of the century, artists such as A. Piñeyro, R. Urdaneta or García Godoy stood out. The first half of the twentieth century, in which both the avant-garde trends of European inspiration and those aimed at a consolidation of representations linked to the Dominican people and landscapes spread, is dominated by the figures of Joryi Morel (1906-1979), Darío Suro (1917 -1998) and Celeste Woss y Gil (1890-1985), trained in the National School of Fine Arts, founded by Trujillo and remained the most important institution for the arts. The expressionism of Ramón Oviedo (b.1927) and José Rincón Mora marks the middle years of the century, together with the works of Ada Balcácer, while in the last decades spaces have opened up for the abstractionism and minimalism; among the contemporaries, among others, Belkys Ramírez, Carlos Santos, Marcos Lora stand out.

Music

As in the whole Caribbean area and as was the case with dance, popular music has Afro, Spanish and Indian influences, however reworked with originality. There is little news on the music of the aborigines and therefore it is not known how much of it actually remains original. While the Spanish contribution is evident in religious music, the Afro presence has imposed itself in the instruments and rhythms. Is the rich traditional heritage instrument: cymbals, palitos (sticks), maracas, Guito, Mariba Dominican flute of Castile, pandereta, fututo etc. The accordion has also been present since the beginning of the century; various types of stringed instruments and guitars are common. The cultured musical tradition began with colonization. In 1512, the chapters of the cathedrals of Santo Domingo and La Vega were established with singers and organists; from 1538, with the foundation in Santo Domingo of the University of St. Thomas, the teaching of music was made compulsory at the faculty of art. The golden period, in which singers and music masters such as Jorge de Viguera, Juan Marqués and Rodrigo Quijada were admired (mid-16th century), was short-lived. In 1586 Francis Drake Santo Domingo burned and the stupendous organs of the cathedral were lost. It was the beginning of the decline and it was necessary to wait until the 19th century and Juan Bautista Alfonseca de Baris, author of religious works and of the Himno de la Independencia, for a revival that soon turned towards Creole music and song, in which José Julio distinguished himself Acosta, Bernardino Barba and Juan Francisco Pereyra.
