The curtain rises to show this butcher shop fully stocked with the best cuts coming from Panamérika.

Wrap your ears with fresh sounds from young calves like Astro, Uvi.Lov, Soledad and I Can Chase Dragons. In this choice of fine luncheon meats, you can have some European taste with cinematic tracks by Modular and Stereo Total.

RBMA’s window to Latin America’s vital music scene and its protagonists.
The first and longest running non-english language show on RBMA Radio, Panamérika is a celebration of the vast and varied cultural landscape in Latin America. Presented by gentle-voiced host Jorge Medina each show provides an enlightening array of references on the bountiful production of music coming from this side of the planet: Ranging from the quintessential rhythms of bolero, cumbias, merengue, norteñas, son, tango (and everything in between), Panamérika will bring on the most improbable fusions with rock, pop, hip hop, electronica and what may come mañana. And while we’re sure the revolution still won’t be televised, you will feel the revolutionary heartbeat pulsing with the beat in these shows, as they merge tunes, approaches and nationalities in true panamerican style. Atención, though: Spanish is spoken here, but then again, you may skip those classes this way, and, anyway, there’s no cheaper way to travel a whole continent, one hour at a time.
