MinneCulture programs are part of KFAI's Legacy Project, which highlights Minnesota arts, culture, history and the environment. MinneCulture airs every Wednesday evening from 7:30 to 8pm.

KFAI is proud to present _Poquito y Bueno_, the first worldwide English-language flamenco webcast! This short and sweet half-hour program presents a panoply of flamenco music ranging from the first to the very latest recordings.

We want this show to be a place for us to showcase our many musical influences (Bachata, Cumbia, Funk, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Merengue, Reggae, Rock, Salsa, Samba, Soul, Chicano/Tejano).
