Dcimas Panameas 1 / Various
We start the collection "Décimas Panameñas," with the purpose of projecting towards the future the contribution of the greatest Panamanian singers, whose voice, soul, rhythm, and feeling devoted to the singing of the décima and the mejorana express the sentiment and experiences of our countrymen. The mejorana is nowadays one of the most Panamanian musical expressions that exist; therefore, we have selected for this volume thirty (30) themes that represent the talent of the greatest singers of the décima, such as Luis del Monte, Pille Collado, Frank Gutiérrez, José del Carmen González, Juan Andrés Castillo, Toñito Vargas, Agustín Rodríguez, and many others. If you are Panamanian, when listening to these themes you will reencounter with your roots. If you are a foreigner, we invite you to enjoy and analyze the lyrics, rhythm and intonation of our singers, in whose vocal cords and notes of their guitars and mejoraneras lie an important part of our national essence.
