Las rutas caribeñas
de la cumbia panameña

October 22, 2021


The Panamanian cumbia is the result of a complex process of cultural dialogue that was unified in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In this webinar, the Panamanian composer and musicologist Samuel Robles, a researcher at the Centro de Investigaciones Históricas, Antropológicas y Culturales AIP (Historical, Anthropological and Cultural Research Center CIHAC AIP), examines the various influences — musical and social — that converged on the Azuero of the early 20th century and that resulted in a vibrant musical culture, constantly innovative and deeply influential in the identity perception of Panamanians.
