This week on Discovery Corner I am featuring Sacramento, CA-based World Hood. They are an Afro-Latin dub group but it really takes elements of hip-hop and afrobeat as well. Aside from that, they operate a community center in Sacramento called the Sol Collective that has music workshops as well as generally serving the community. I spoke to half of the duo, Anand Parmar, who provides the beats with his wife Estrella Hood on vocals. We discussed what exactly the Center does, growing up in Zambia and what the meaning behind their  2012 EP Mundo Libre is. Vamanos!
