Analyze several different portraits of William Shakespeare

Comparing Shakespeare Portraits

We look at 8 different portraits of William Shakespeare. Part of the mystery to all of these portraits is that there is no solid evidence that Shakespeare ever commissioned a portrait of himself, and even more mysteriously, there is no written description of his physical appearance. How can that be? After Shakespeare's death, as his reputation grew, artists started creating portraits and various narrative paintings depicting him. Most of these were believed to have been based on earlier images, but some of them were purely the imagination of the artist.

An introduction to Rumba music and performer Chano Pozo

Rumba Music and Chano Pozo

"Rumba" is the name given to a musical "genre" (a particular category and type of music) of Afro-Cuban music. This term, Afro-Cuban, also needs some explanation here - it's the name applied to musical traditions of Africans brought to Cuba as slaves, which happened as early as the 1500's but was at its peak in the 1830's. Rumba is a music of Cuban origin, but the style, using voice, percussion and dance, is an African tradition. We give an introduction to rumba star Chano Pozo with a couple videos to give you some examples of the music.
