Instrumental Folk Music of Panama Review

by John Storm Roberts

A terrific find -- and a reminder that the accordion is really everywhere. Though Danzas Panama (accordion, fiddle, small guitar, percussion, voices) plays Panama's National Theatre, it also does local fiestas. The group plays various styles -- mejorana, tamborito and the like -- that are normally very separate from each other, but the playing and singing are very near the roots. (56:17)
