El Puchero Del Hortelano sing about serious matters in a most airy way, while Jair Oliveira sings about the need for play. Terne Chave turn in a high powered performance that swings and percolates, and Adriana Lucia peddles her bicycle spreading flowers and good vibes. Peret plays a doctor dealing with a lying patient, and Gael Garcia Bernal brings us a song from Rudo y Cursi that's a send up of Mexican videos.

Life and death get equal time in this block. Manu Chao deplores politics, Lila Downs sings about the slain human rights lawyer Digna Ochoa and Aterciopelados plead for a cleanup of the river that runs through Bogota. Then Korean Jang-Sa-ik sings a song about a soul trying to find its way to heaven, Techung sings a Tibetan folk song about the starry sky and Cibelle gives a delicate interpretation of a Tom Waits eulogy.

They walked more than 1,000 miles and it took almost six months to reach the safety of "Free China." In this episode, Cecilia joins Laurence Jossel, chef and owner of Nopa.
