Crate Digging Expeditions: Colombia (with Yale Evelev)

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Seasoned global music trekker Yale Evelev (whose day job is running the esteemed Luaka Bop label) told us that the LPs and 45s - from Colombia and other countries too - that he brought home from the bountiful record shop Disc Colombia in Baranquilla are really, really great. So we said prove it! And he did - as our guest DJ for the first half of this show.

See Yale's blog post about his trip to the shop (pictured above, with Shane at the counter) plus more photos, here.

If you're planning a trip to Colombia and you need more information about how to find Disc Colombia in Baranquilla, send me (Rob) an email via robw AT wfmu DOT org or by clicking here.
