In part 3 of our 4-part podcast series, "The Cumbia Diaspora," we visit Buenos Aires, Argentina to find out how a new form of cumbia emerged during the financial crisis of 2001 and turned the nation upside down. We speak with Jace Clayton (aka DJ Rupture) about his experiences attending cumbia villera parties the shantytowns while reporting for Fader magazine, as well as with cumbia scholar Hector Fernandez-L'Hoeste.
