Episode Description
Sunday, Sep 24, 2017 - 6:00 PM    "Bridges" The first hour traces the rise of Latin jazz and the explosion of the mambo and the cha-cha as they swept the U.S. from east to west, and infiltrated rhythm and blues and rock 'n' roll through the 1960s. Then the Puerto Ricans and other Latinos in New York add elements from soul and jazz to son cubano and the plena from Puerto Rico to create salsa, which becomes a defining rhythm for Latinos the world over.
