Panama! 3 Calypso Panameno, Guajira Jazz & Cumbia Tipica On the Isthmus 1960-75
Various Artists
Soundway Records
Catalogue Number
Release Date
November 16, 2009

Volume three of the series provides further evidence of Panama’s mesmerizing mix of tropical music and national pride during the fertile decades of the 1960s and 1970s.

Compiled by Quantic, Roberto Gyemant and Miles Cleret, Panama! 3 uncovers a host of artists whose music has never been released outside of Panama. Due to its’ unique geographical location connecting North and South America, Panama’s music is a soulful blend of Latin American, Caribbean, European and indigenous forms.

From bilingual calypsos to guajira jazz, from tropical guarachas to cumbia tamboreras, Panamanian musicians fearlessly combined styles that reflected their multicultural environment during a turbulent time in the young country’s history.


“Soundway’s excellent series of compilations of vintage pop..[Panama 3] is the most enjoyable so far.” BBC MUSIC (UK)
