4/27/2011 Radio Pocho


"El Bombazo de Maria Isa" With some Eddie Palmieri gracing the background we roll out the jams for this episode of Radio Pocho. The talented Mari Isa joins us for the first time on the show, but after this interview it's clear it won't be the last time. She joins us to talk about the evolution of her career grounded by familia, cultura, and musica.

Check out some of her favorite cuts by Julio Voltio, La India and Eddie Palmieri. DJ Miguel Vargas and DJ Ren hit back with some Mexican cumbia, Venezuelan salsa and Afro Peruvian electronica.

We also feature some great Minneapolis funk by Jesse Johnson with additional cameos by Klymaxx, LL Cool J, Steve Jordan, and much much more.
