Conference about Panamanian Cumbia
Several speakers presented research related to our Panamanian cumbia.
Old records were an important part of the discussion about cumbia in Panama.
People from all over Panama attended in order to learn about Panamanian music heritage.
In early April 2016, a conference dealing with cumbia music in Panama was held at the city of Las Tablas. A number of research papers about history and typology of our traditional Panamanian music were presented.
The event, attended by dozens of people, served as a very valuable discussion plataform where experts and fans of cumbia were able to exchange ideas about the origins, the present and the future of Panama's best known music genre.
