Arturo O'Farrill's 'Fandango at the Wall' Transcends Borders

Celebrated jazz musician Arturo O'Farrill has dedicated his life to envisioning a future of inclusion and collaboration. His newest project, "Fandango at the Wall," was inspired by a festival he participated in on the U.S.-Mexico border. In the album, O'Farrill brings together the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra with more than 60 musicians. In this episode, Maria Hinojosa sits down with O'Farrill to discuss how he's not only crossing artificial borders, but erasing them.
