Panama 9 Singles
Various Artists, Years and Labels


Ever since my first encounter with the music from Panama,
I am on the lookout for singles and elpees from over there.
Not an easy job, especially when one lives in Western Europe.
Now I believe in persisting and look, today I can bring you this
little collection of singles and I am very glad to be able doing so.
Some are a little scratchy, hope you’ll enjoy them anyway..

Er is weinig muziek zo moeilijk te vinden als die uit Panama.
Maar zoals gezegd, de aanhouder wint en na enkele jaren
zoeken en struinen heb ik vandaag een bescheiden stapeltje
singletjes voor je op schijf gezet en tot Mp3’s omgetoverd.
Negen stuks waarvan 1 soort van salsa, 2 calypso en zes maal
cumbia Panama style, pak snel en geniet ze deze zomer..

    Very nice collection Moos .. makes me even more happy to live in Panama when playing this ;-) .. definitely not easy to find vinyl – even not here – but if I come across some records surely will let you know .. and of course you’re always very welcome to visit Panama !

    Spannend, Panama bevindt zich niet op mijn muziekradar. Ik ga ‘m binnenslurpen en in de vakantie es luisteren.

    Dank weer!

    That would be cool Moos ;-)
    Nowadays it is also much easier to fly low-cost to several cities in Colombia from here, if you think of combining with a trip to Colombia too
