Broadband Channel Debuts Reggaeton TV Show on Barrio 305

Posted by Elena del Valle on December 13, 2005

Barrio305 launched a reggaeton TV Show. Episode One of the show, titled "From Miami 2 Puerto Rico," was scheduled to be broadcast in it’s entirity on the site. That episode featured comprehensive and in depth coverage of the reggaeton/Latin hip hop community.

Shot on location in Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico, the first episode uncovers the cultural movement known as reggaeton with special interviews, event coverage, never-before-seen behind the scenes footage of top reggaeton artists and special segments that feature import tuners and the Barrio Babes.

Barrio 305 obtained one-of-kind exclusive interviews with major hitters in the reggaeton and urban Latino music scene.  Fat Joe, Pitbull, Nicky Jam and Tego Calderon are some the big names that have participated in making Barrio 305 a leading authority on reggaeton and urban Latin music coverage.

The name Barrio 305 is a Spanglish term that describes the emerging Latino youth culture in the U.S. Barrio is Spanish for neighborhood and 305 is the area code for the city of Miami; organizers hope the name captures the bi-cultural nature of English dominant Latinos living in U.S. urban areas.

Barrio 305 hopes to expand reggaeton’s audience outside major cities. Online-featured artists include leading acts such as Tego Calderon, Queen Ivy, Don Chezina and Daddy Yankee. As it’s popularity grows  broadband channels such as Barrio 305, could act as an outlet for upcoming artists to stimulate the forefront of the "urban" Latin America.  More information is available at
