Episode Summary

ChocQuibTown (Afro-Colombian Hip-Hop Group)
ChocQuibTown is a Colombian Hip-Hop group featuring Gloria Martinez (a.k.a. Goyo), Yahanny Valencia (a.k.a. Tostao) and Slow. Their name is a combination of Choco, the region of Colombia's Pacific Coast in which the trio was raised, and Quibodo, its capital. They refer to their music as Afro-Colombian, combining traditional Choco rhythms and instruments like the marimba de chonta with funk and Hip-Hop. They released two full-lengths in Colombia, 2007's Somos Pacifico and 2009's Oro. In 2009, they were nominated for Best New Artist at the Latin Grammys and in 2010 they won a Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Song for "De Donde Vengo Yo." Nacional Records released Oro in the US in March 2010. In 2011, they were nominated for Best Latin Rock, Alternative or Urban Album at the Grammy Awards.moreless
