    Celebrating Afropop's 25th...From Mexico City to Cuba and Beyond

    We start out at the Vive Latino Festival in Mexico City to hear local legends Cafe Tacvba as they perform for 60,000 hysterical fans singing along to every word, enjoy the refreshing alt-norteño of Juan Cirerol, soul-stirring tunes from the captivating Carla Morrison, and driving electro-cumbia from Sonido San Francisco, just to name a few. Plus, exclusive interviews with Chilean sensation Astro, and Hello Seahorse frontwoman Lo Blondo. Then we jump to Cuba, to a special Afropop visit to Oriente, eastern Cuba to hear some of the amazing tumba francesa groups whose origins go back to those fleeing the Haitian Revolution and recreating their music in new ways in their new home.
