Long Description: 
Host Jacob Edgar heads to Bogota, Colombia's capital and biggest metropolis, to explore the city's thriving rock and pop music scene. There, world-famous rockers Aterciopelados treat Edgar to an unplugged performance in the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria and bring him to a nearby indigenous peoples cultural center for a ceremony with Arhuaco shamans. The up-and-coming rock band Superlitio opens the doors of their recording studio for a private jam and later, Edgar digs through the crates at a funky shoe store/vinyl record store in downtown Bogota. Finally, he meets Fonseca, one of Colombia's biggest pop stars, in Monserrate, a cathedral high in the mountains overlooking Bogota, for an unplugged performance of his hit song, "Paraiso."
