Music Voyager

The Capital Of Salsa

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
The Colombian city of Cali, known as the world capital of salsa, also serves as the urban center of the country's Afro-Pacific culture. Host Jacob Edgar discovers why Columbia adopted as its native style the upbeat tropical dance music of salsa. He meets Grupo Niche, one of the world's most famous salsa bands, for a performance at their private club Dulce con Dulce, and explores the famous Juanchito neighborhood where salsa clubs line the streets. A four- time world champion salsa dance team demonstrates their moves in a square in downtown Cali (Plaza Caicedo), while the electronic duet No DJs provides a taste of cutting-edge Latin music. This episode also explores the local Afro-Pacific music with an intimate performance by Grupo Bahia on the banks of the Rio Melendez, and young bloods Herencia de Timbiqui demonstrate their funky grooves in the streets of the old city. Finally, Edgar jams in Matildelina with the hippest salsa band in Colombia, La-33, who bring a modern attitude to this classic style.
