En este episodio iniciamos en la bahía de Cádiz sin salir de Nueva York conJavier Ruibal, cantautor español que nos presenta su trabajo donde la fusión de poesía, flamenco, jazz y otros ritmos del mundo dan lugar a una música oriunda de un país que aún no existe.

Después viajamos al norte de Manhattan con Dafnis Prieto, percusionista y compositor cubano que ha encontrado en esta ciudad el nicho perfecto para su propuesta musical. Su trayectoria profesional lo ha llevado a ser nominado a los premios Grammy en dos ocasiones.

De ahí nos vamos al canal panameño a disfrutar del Panama Jazz Festival, evento que comparte con la gran manzana no solo la música sino su misma administración. Su fundador y director Danilo Pérez nos habla en entrevista desde Nueva York, y tenemos la oportunidad de ver imágenes de este evento, gracias a la televisora pública SER TV.

Y para cerrar, vamos de propuestas musicales a literarias, cuando regresamos a Nueva York pasando la mirada por la ciudad de México. Juan Villoro periodista y escritor mexicano, autor de "Los culpables" y "El testigo”, hace una dinámica comparación de estas dos metrópolis, en entrevista con Carmen Boullosa.

On this show, we begin in Cádiz, without leaving New York, with Spanish singer-songwriter Javier Ruibal, his fusion of poetry, flamenco, jazz and other rhythms of the world become music from a country that still doesn't exist.

Then we go to Upper Manhattan with the Cuban percussionist and composer, Dafnis Prieto, who has found in this city the perfect niche for his musical expression, which has already won him two Grammy nominations.

Then we go to the Panama Canal, to enjoy the Panama Jazz Festival, an event that shares with the Big Apple, not only its music, but also its administration. Its founder and director Danilo Pérez grants us an interview from New York and we will see images from this event thanks to the public TV station Ser TV.

And, finally, we go from music to literature, as we return to New York to catch a view of Mexico City. Juan Villoro, Mexican journalist and writer, author of "The Culprits" and "The Witness", offers a dynamic comparison of these two cities in an interview with Carmen Boullosa.
