In many ways, Bogotá is a lot like the north of England: the weather's not so great but the people are kind and dying to have a good time. And what do good people do in bad weather? They create. In the case of Bogotá, Colombia that means cultivating a thriving and multi-faceted music scene built on the pulsing sound of reggaeton. Back in February (before the pandemic, we hasten to add), we made the trip out to the surprisingly temperate city of Bogotá (which locals affectionately call "The Fridge") to investigate the converging sounds of reggaeton and the region's Afro-Latin roots, and look at how the soundsystem-ready rhythms are setting pace for the rest of the world.
