Flix Astol, was author of several pieces of popular music, but his most famous work was the dance Bellsima triguea (Georgeus brunette), composed in 1867. Conceived as a love song, it has had several versions throughout Latin America. In Cuba had the title of Mi amor (My love). In Brazil it was named Encantadora infancia (Lovely childhood). In Peru has two versions, one of them is named Bellsima peruana (Georgeus Peruvian). In Haiti is danced and in Venezuela is well known too. But the most popular version is "La Borinquea", adopted as the official anthem of Puerto Rico.
The revolutionary lyrics written by Lola Rodguez de Ti a year after the composition of the danza, became the popular anthem. It was a time of great turbulence in Puerto Rico, as a nationalist revolution against Spain was sweeping across the political landscape. The lyrics were in keeping with that spirit.
However, the lyrics known and sung today are attributed to Manuel Fernndez Juncos per the request of the new Commonwealth, as Lola's were yet again deemed too revolutionary.
