19/22.- Panama City, traditional dress


Panamanians are very proud of their colonial past. People dressed in colonial dress can be spotted on special occasions. I took the picture of the girl on the left during a stroll in Casco Viejo. Her mother was very proud of her daughter’s beauty.

Panama has an estimated population of 3 million, 750,000 of them live in its cosmopolitan capital. The culture of the People of panama is Caribbean. The majority of the citizens are mixed. The official language is Spanish, but English is widely spoken.

Panama is rich in traditions and folklore. Caribbean music is very pervasive. Salsa music and reageton can be heard everywhere. Panama's most famous performer is Ruben Blades.
