This program is focused on Afrodisíaco’s founders, Miroslava Herrera and Tatiana Ríos.

The Cosmic Barrio - Episode 32.

Queridos podca-escuchas, ésta es una edición muy especial del Barrio Cósmico, desde Cuba. La semana pasada estuve estuve en La Habana, participando en la conferencia "AM-PM / América por su música" y tuve la fortuna de asistir a un concierto de Silvio Rodríguez en el barrio de Jaimanitas, a unos 30 minutos del centro de la ciudad. Así que tengo el enorme placer de compartirles la experiencia en este podcast. Este programa incluye 6 canciones del concierto de Silvio; la entrevista con una pareja de jóvenes cubanos; y el testimonio de dos grandes cantautores que admiran y respetan el trabajo de Silvio: Kelvis Ochoa y Carlos Varela.
