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.

A Variety Show

In 1937, the Japanese invaded China and by 1939 they arrived in Beijing, seizing most of the large family compound and with it, Cecilia's idyllic and privileged youth. By 1941 there wasn't enough food for the family so Cecilia and her number five sister (she had nine in total), fled on foot through Japanese occupied territory. 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.
