In this episode, we begin near Times Square, where we chat with Dan Zanes about "Nueva York," his latest album of music for kids, recorded with musicians from different parts of Latin America. Dan, who won a Grammy in 2007, tells us what moved him to record an album entirely in Spanish.
 
Then Patricio Lerzundi takes us to the Upper East Side to visit Colombian painter Omar Rayo, who created a unique style, with his paintings, drawings and sculptures. Master Rayo's geometric labyrinths are recognized all over the world.
 
And, finally, we go to the streets of the South Bronx, the birthplace of hip hop, to explore this urban movement with poet and rapper "La Bruja del Bronx", graffiti artist "Toofly" and dancer “Rockafella.” They give us a picture of the new role of women in hip hop culture and art.
