Conscious Colombian Pop

Cocaine and Colombia are perpetually linked. No matter how well the War on Drugs is (or isn't) working, the country cannot shake the stigma. But that's just the most publicized of the country's problems.

If history has taught us anything, it's that music has the power to change the status quo. From John Lennon's "Imagine" to N.W.A.'s "Fuck tha Police," music is always at the forefront of serious issues.

Well, one politically-conscious band has been speaking out against the country's faults for more than a decade. This week Radio Chevere is spotlighting the wild sounds of Aterciopelados. Come back soon for an in-depth look at what has the whole world looking at this dynamic duo.
