The pressures of disabling the patriarchy and accommodating it to fit everyone has been the basis of my childhood. From growing up in a Hispanic culture to exploring the American culture I have learned to love, it’s difficult not to notice the differences between each culture. I had always been a fan of media and the females I saw on television were one of the first perceptions of women I had. The way females were treated in the shows and movies I watched reflected the Hispanic culture I grew up in, so I never questioned the credibility. I am immensely proud of my hispanic culture and the traditions it brings along with it, but I started to notice the harsh gender restrictions that were present.
When it comes to the Hispanic’s quinceanera I do know something things about it and then there are some things that I have learn by attending one of a close friend. I already know that a quinceanera is their version of the American “Sweet Sixteen”. I was already aware that they celebrate it by having a party with friends and family. I know that Hispanics are big on family and that a big milestone is a reason to celebrate it.
Today, when one turns on the radio, Pandora, or any type music streaming company, we will most likely hear artists singing songs that do not sound like their ‘usual sound.’ Today they are known as crossover artists, and some of the most widely know to this day are Taylor Swift from country to pop, Enrique Iglesias and Gloria Estefan both coming from Latin fan bases to the American pop culture. Latin artists almost always start off with fan base in Spanish speaking countries, but once they are able to crossover into the American mainstream music it is a completely different story, it leads to instant fame. They are recognized around the world, even if it is for one hit. Yet this is where most Latin artists struggle, because in order to become more popular they need to break the barrier between
In Document A they’re disputing natives for titles of ownership, and the maintenance of the country. "That gave birth against the opposition of the invaders”, Thus our position is most extraordinary and complicated” (Bolivar 1819). He gives this speech to all the mixed aborigines, and Spaniards, his message in Document A was to define Venezuelan nation identity. Their desire for power, equal representation in government, and economic control is another part of why they led the fight in the revolution against Spain. One of the main sources of independence sentiment was the growing rivalry between the Creoles and peninsular.
Venezuela and United States “To survive in peace and harmony, united and strong, we must have one people, one nation, one flag.’’ This quotation of Pauline Hanson defines how important values are, not just for one person or one community, but for a whole nation. On one hand, we have Venezuelan people, and on the other hand American people. Even though these two countries have similarities in the weather and food, there are three major differences between Venezuela and United States.
The author Elisa Sahagun can be considered an authoritative source for my topic because she has written an article that explains ways the music genre of Rock en Espanol has influenced the cultural identity of Latino youth culture in the U.S. Her article can be creditable because it is an academic peer-reviewed article from Saint Mary’s College of California. The article analyzes data that was acquired from a study that examine a correlation between Rock en Espanol and the cultural identity of Latino youth. A main point made is that the genre of music has assisted in Latinos to maintain Spanish-speaking skills and brought them closer to their culture (Sahagun 1). One reason being that we are drawn to music and it has lead it to be a vital part of shaping individuals’ identities.
Some Creoles in Venezuela and certain areas that had moved from the periphery to the center during the late colonial era benefitted from the relaxed trade policies. However, this made the Creoles want greater free trade than the Bourbons were willing to grant. It made the Creoles angry with the crown’s preference for the Peninsulares in administrative
As a Mexican American, being Hispanic means everything I live, breathe and stand for. To me Hispanic means family, culture, unity, sacrifice and love. Growing up in a Mexican household, allowed me to embrace the meaning of family and welcome the core values that have been embedded in my heart and spirit. I am proud and honored to be taught how to work hard physically and mentally, to commit and lead in causes that are worth the fight, to sacrifice for others and to serve one another in love. Not only was I led by example of these things, but I had numerous opportunities to see it in Hispanic community and the church as well.
There are approximately seven billion human beings in the world, each having their own culture and traditions. Coincidentally enough, “The Tequila Worm” is based on a small town in Texas, with a family who shares the same family traditions as mine. Viola Canales, the author, talks about the main protagonist, Sophia, and how she celebrates her culture. The making of Easter cascarones, celebrating Dia de Los Muertos, and her connection with her father, Sophia’s life is not so different from mine. Therefore, Sophia’s life and experiences are uncanny similarities to mine and that is what this essay will focus on.
I’m the first generation of my family to be Mexican -American, but I have been introduced to the Mexican culture since I was born. I appreciate the difficulties my parents have faced to make me the person that I am today even though I wasn’t born in Mexico my parents have taught me the language and the culture which I’m so proud of being part of. For others being Hispanic is actually being born in any Latin American countries which is not true at all. Being Hispanic is much more than my cultural background it actually describes how much I appreciate my culture and how I get to experience things other people don’t. I fit into the Hispanic community through the experiencing the culture first hand ,participating in traditions and planning to include my culture in my future.
In this quote, Syme is explaining Winston about how the Party uses totalitarian mechanisms to oppress people by censoring several works of english literature. A totalitarian government is the one who pretends to control every aspect of the citizen's lives. This ambition of having a total authority over the past, the present and the future in concern to its residents, destroys the whole essence of these aesthetic works and authors that don’t only show our history and our evolution, but a complete new perspective of life in language, culture and information. In the present quotidian life, the situation of book edition by Venezuela’s ex President, Hugo Chávez presents the same totalitarian systems by the domination over the venezuelan people;
Latin Jazz, also known as Afro-Cuban jazz originated around 1940. It was due to the gradual and long interactions of American and Cuban music which birthed this distinct style of jazz. African american tunes and dance rhythms traveled north into the United States as well as the musical styles of African-American Jazz found their way down to the Caribbean and Central and Southern America. The fusion of both musical styles; Cuban music and African-American jazz was largely due to musicians and dancers throughout the area beginning to familiarise themselves with both of the musical techniques. The fusion happened in 1940 in the city of New York through the beginning of Machito and the Afro-Cubans orchestra, which was under directorship of Cuban trumpeter Mario Bauzá who essentially created the Latin Jazz through fusing jazz arrangements with Afro- Cuban percussion rhythm.
Joropo of Venezuela vs. Novena de casa of Brazil It had been suggested that the genuine root of culture has cultivated traditions. For different nationalities traditions are the most popular form of self–expression. When people listen to their own traditional music or dance their cultural dances, show their rituals or share their food with others, they give a voice not only to their souls, hearts and thoughts, but also to their traditions, morals and manners. For Venezuela, one of the most important reproduction of their culture and their traditions is Joropo, which is a folkloric and popular genre with many regional variants that is performed at rural dance occasions where friends and relatives come
Culture refers to the common beliefs and behavior patterns of a group of people. In an organizational setup, it refers to the common values that the stakeholders of the organization share, and impact their decision-making process. According to Cristina De Rossi, “Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things” (De Ross, 2015). Western culture refers to the cultures that are heavily influenced by European cultures, and has its roots from the Greco-Roman cultures as well as Christianity and spread through immigration to other parts of the world. Eastern culture is the culture of the Eastern Asian countries including China, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, and India (Zimmermann, 2017).
