Episode Details

Original tape date: December 21, 2015.

We begin this episode with one of the groups participating in the Latin Alternative Music Conference, LAMC, held annually in New York. ChocQuibTown is a group of Afro-Colombian hip-hop and has won several Grammys. Its innovative sound fusions funk, hip hop and reggae with traditional rhythms from Colombia's Pacific coast, as bunde, currulao, bambazú and aguabajo.

Then we go to Manhattan, where Patricio Lerzundi interviews the Cuban sociologist Lisandro Perez. From his chair at John Jay College, his books and his blog "Cuban Yorker" Lisandro analyzes the complex relations between Cuba and the United States, so they spend more cultural and social than by politics.

Then we talk with the artists Patricia Cazorla & Nancy Saleme who talk about how they started this fruitful collaboration and its conception of "Public Art" in places like Port Authority and the streets of Newark, New Jersey.

Finally we arrived in Cali, Colombia, where we interviewed the members of Delirio, a musical revue that has revolutionized the world of salsa with choreographies mixing cabaret and circus. It’s social work has been an alternative for poor young dancers in that city.
