Puerto Rico is truly one of the great hotbeds for Caribbean culture. Beyond its celebrated status as a capital of salsa and reggaeton, San Juan is home to a music and arts scene that is as diverse and progressive as any city in North or South America. We had Geko Jones — DJ, Que Bajo?! party founder, New York City-based Boricua (and Colombian) and frequent San Juan denizen — put us up on the innovators and creatives moving P.R. forward.
I made my list about 10 people that I believe are changing the face of Puerto Rico. Not all of them are musicians —I included a couple of prominent street artists, a dance choreographer — for a more varied look of the island. This is, to me, a fair sample of folks that are doing innovative work out there. —Geko Jones
