"Panama is several worlds inside a very little country," he said. "And that's why, I think, our sound is so different. Come to the show and see for yourself."

Minutes after our March 5 interview, the news broke: Hugo Chávez was dead. Los Rakas posted an Instagram photo of the late Venezuelan president kissing a Panamanian flag. "Raka Chávez R.I.P.," it read, followed by a #realraka hashtag. I called Raka Dun for a follow-up comment.

"We don't know much about [Chávez's] policies," Raka Dun conceded, "but we watched documentaries and the way he talked to his people showed us he was a true revolutionary. He was an example that you can do whatever you want if you're ready to die for an idea. Unpolished, controversial, honest: just what a true raka would say.
