Una fiesta Nicaragüense de esplendor sónico!

Although Nicaragua has yet to give birth to a style of music heard round the world, the largest country in Central America nurses many young styles between its two coasts.  African-influenced Reggae and Punta music shakes the Caribbean shores, while Spanish-inflected folk and Chicheros brass music pumps up the Pacific.  But marimbas are everywhere!  Shake it boys!

This week’s trip also includes orchestral hip hop, uncensored funk, ’60s Spanish-Invasion rockn’roll, and the music of revolutions..
