PAN CON QUESO’S SIGNIFICANCE
Bryan Llenas of Fox News Latino wrote an intriguing article about the cultural significance of the viral hit, Pan Con Queso. Aside from detailing the inception of the successful parody, the passionate journalist goes on to quote startling figures about the Dominican American population drop in Washington Heights, Manhattan–something that Pan Con Queso star, and Uptown resident himself, Juan Bago, is genuinely concerned about. "Arts, he said, need to be better supported among Dominicans, particularly in Washington Heights, known as New York City’s center of Dominican American culture and a place that looms large in the cultural landscape of the Dominican diaspora." The article also goes on to quote several other culturally-relevant sources, including Cid Wilson, vice chairman of the National American Latino Museum commission and Manny Pimentel, founder of ThatsDominican.com.
