Panama! 2 showcases the unique tropical music created in Panama during the fertile decades of the 1960s and 70s offering a non-stop journey through the afro-rhythms and carnival sounds of Panama, the gateway to central America.
It is little known that Panama was a central spoke in the wheel of Caribbean music. The dance-floors and bars of Colon spat out a heady mix that took in the raw vallenato of neighboring Colombia, the soul and funk of America, the calypso of Trinidad and the son and rumba of Cuba.
Highlights include some of Panama’s most revered groups known collectively as ‘Los Combos Nacionales’ including The Exciters, The Soul Fantastics and Los Silvertones. REVIEWS “A dynamite snapshot of a musically-underrated nation.” ★★★★ MOJO (UK)
“There’s a raucous grandeur to these vintage latin recordings.” TELEGRAPH (UK)
