Panama! 3 Release Party Tonight

Over the last few years, Soundway Records has been releasing some the best compilations focusing on all different kinds of funky rare world grooves from Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America. This is why I'm excited that tonight, San Francisco's Elbo Room will be hosting Soundway's DJ Beto alongside Groove Merchant's Vinnie Esparza, and DJ Guillermo for a Panama! 3 release party. The Panama! 3 compilation, which has been mentioned before of this site, was one of my personal favorites of the year comprised of rare and impossible-to-find Calypso Panameno, Guajira Jazz, and Cumbia Tipica grooves. According to the Soundway website, part 3 will make up the last of this increadible series. Therefore, I highly recommend everyone in the bay to head down to the Elbo Room for this very exciting one-time event.

Here are a few tracks off the compilation to get you excited about tonight.
Papi Brandao Y Sus Ejecutivos - Bilongo

Ralph Weeks with The Telecasters - Gua Jazz

Is that our host Les Stache on the album cover?

If not, the hat is mighty similar!
