Watch record dealer Victor Kiswell go digging in Colombia



Follow Kiswell as he hunts and haggles his way through Bogota.

Trading exclusively in jaw-dropping rarities, Victor Kiswell is something of a cult dealer. To keep his stock fresh, Kiswell regularly globe trots in search of hidden treasures. Digging for him, is both a passion and a job.

Following his recent trip to Cairo, this second episode of Vinyl Bazaar takes Kiswell to Colombia.

First stop? Botoga, and to must-visit spot Cosmos – an Aladdin’s cave of shoes, salsa and cumbia. As Kiswell explains, he’s drawn to the the lesser-known style of Afro cumbia, which traces the African roots of this 17th century dance music. He’s not prepared to part with his cash unless he gets a fair deal though – as you’ll see above.
