The first colony of Europeans in the western hemisphere was in the Dominican Republic, and
their traditions have been there ever since. The old colonial buildings are still in midcondition, some examples are in Santo Domingo. Art, music, and literature are developed in
Western patterns. Almost equally strong is the African cultural strain. In the folk culture,
especially the music, the African heritage is present. These two traditions mix in the widely
national songs and dances,like merengue. A lot of major cultural institutions in the country, in
like the National Fine Arts Gallery, are located in Santo Domingo.

SOL DE DOCE
by Pedro Mir
Este sol sube a las doce
para inflamar un bohío,
ya dejó el alba de oro
y el horizonte de vidrio
ya va subiendo la cuesta
por donde ha bajado el río.
The sun rises at noon
to warm up a little hut.
It left behind the golden dawn
and the horizon's glass port.
It climbs up the hill
where a downward river has flowed.
