About us

Born in 2008 out of a desire to build bridges between musical scenes from both hemispheres, Groovalizacion is a collective of DJs, journalists and cultural activists from all over the world whose podcasts both highlight the latest worldwide trends of urban music and explore their local roots - whether they are Afro-Latin, Mediterranean or from other regions of the world. The result is a modern approach sensitive to cultural fusions and experimentation. Groovalizacion’s programs are produced in four languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese and English and located at www.groovalizacion.com. You can join our online community here.
A couple of shows are curating a monthly album list (The Album Digest) a music video list (Visions Of Sound) and are creating a monthly exclusive mix on rhythmpassport.com. Shows curating are Radio Mukambo, The Global Glitch, Tropical Beats, Bounty Radio, Global Riddims and Movimientos.

MUSICAS MIGRATORIAS

Sound is movement, movement is sound. For music, migration is the only way to survive. Migration is oxygen. Musicas Migratorias proposes a patchwork of global soundscape and nomadic melody, a travel through ethnic music and contemporary sounds from the most diverse latitudes.
