We kick things off in the Museum of the City of New York. Carmen Boullosa hosts an interview with the Mexican, Benito Santos, who shares his experience participating in New York's Uptown Fashion Week. He tells us about his obsession with the human body and how he went from medical school to fashion design to become one of today's top haute couture designers.
Then we head over to Midtown Manhattan to meet Jaime and Felipe Torres, two brothers who were inspired by their passion for Peruvian and Latin American cooking to open Raymi, a restaurant enjoying great gastronomic success.
Later, we'll catch up with artist Tz'utu Kan, one of the members of the Mayan hip-hop group Balam Ajpu. The group is currently on tour promoting its first album, Tribute to the 20 Nawuales. The album is designed to use music as a means to teach people about the Mayan calendar.
Our final stop today is in Upper Manhattan to meet Bolivian designer Eliana Paco. Her colorful designs and fresh take on traditional jewelry worn by indigenous women, also known as "cholas" from La Paz, are being featured on catwalks in both New York and Bolivia for Fashion Week.
