Panama, Puerto Rico
Meet Rubén Blades, a Salsa superstar. He helped mix Cuban and Caribbean rhythms with Jazz in New York City. Rubén Blades (or, Rubencito here among friends) composed some salsa classics while also excelling as a singer. But that’s not all. Moviegoers may recognize him as one of the victims in Predator 2. He also has a law degree and ran for president of Panama. When this video with Calle 13 was filmed, he was Panama’s Tourism Minister.
Jaime and Ramiro seem to be onto "Pierre Bernard."
Formerly known as “Bitman y Roban,” DJ Bitman is one of the new faces of Chilean music. But DJ Bitman’s music is far from belonging to only one place: you can hear traces of Brazilian samba and even some New York hip hop. There is also some Caribbean salsa and some European dub. It’s not a surprise that people from everywhere enjoy it!
Let’s keep learning the Chilango slang. Ciudad de México, also knows as El Distrito or el D.F. is home to around 21 million people. Of course, they have to set themselves apart from people coming from other cities, and that’s why they created their own words, their own expressions. We went to share and learn with this nice construction crew, all of them very proud of being Chilangos.
