This sweet soul-inspired double-header harks back to Panama in the late-'60s, a time when musicians fearlessly combined styles that reflected their multicultural environment. "Moving Grooving" (featured on Panama!3) and exclusive track "Hiko Iko" are both ultra-rare hand-clapping, foot-stomping soul workouts courtesy of the Greaves brothers, Frankie and Franklyn. Both tracks were originally served up on a super-limited 45 on Segraves Records in 1969 and highlight the massive influence of American soul music on musica Panameña during and after the black power cultural movement in the U.S. A reference to the early work of James Brown may seem a tad lazy, but it's accurate.
