The New Medellin
series: Music Voyager
air date: 3/27/13 5:30 AM
Despite its notoriety as the home of drug baron Pablo Escobar, Medellin is a modern, thriving city nestled in a scenic mountain valley. Host Jacob Edgar tours a local hip-hop school and community center in the Aranjuez neighborhood that provides a positive outlet for inner city youth. He also enjoys a virtuoso freestyle display by local hip-hop collective Crew Peligrosos, a private performance by reggaeton superstar J-Balvin in his luxurious penthouse apartment and a visit to El Cielo, one of Colombia's most inventive restaurants. After a visit to the headquarters and archives of Discos Fuentes, Colombia's pioneering record label founded in 1934, Edgar and the crew pull off a skin-of-our-teeth nighttime street performance with Puerto Candelaria, a quirky band fusing creative jazz arrangements with retro-Colombian cumbia.
