One of the latest and most exciting trends in Colombian music fuses the traditional rhythms and melodies with electronic beats and modern influences. Host Jacob Edgar explores this cutting-edge Bogota scene, starting with an electrifying live performance in the streets with La Mojarra Electrica. Then, he meets British DJ and producer Richard Blaire, whose Sidestepper project pioneered the electrotropical trend. Systema Solar provides a sample of their funky and eclectic sound at the equally colorful restaurant and nightclub, Andres Carne de Res. Finally, one of the most popular electrotropical bands, Bomba Estereo, treat viewers to a stripped-down performance of one of the group's new songs at Gaira, a popular Bogotá restaurant that doubles as a Colombian music museum.
