The Stories Behind the Tweets, hosted by William Parra, seeks to open a window to the world, to get to the bottom of stories larger than 140 characters. In the first segment we explore Puerto Rico’s oldest musical genre –the Puerto Rican bomba, which combines percussion, dancing and singing that began as a form of resistance in the slave communities on the coastal regions of the island and is still alive today. Then it´s on to San Carlos, a village in Colombia where almost 85% of the population has been displaced in the armed conflict.
