Panama has been a melting pot of several cultures for quite a long time now. Originally, the native Indian groups created acoustic instruments using parts of plants and shells of different animals. Before them, the Spanish conquerors brought their influences from the Old World. The Afro-Caribbean’s also contributed to the Panamanian culture when they came for the Canal construction. Also other small groups contributed to what is today, one the most attractive and folkloric heritages of Latin America.
Panama has been considered “The Crossroad of the World” for many years now. Many cultures (Spaniards, Africans, and Indians) widely influenced our culture and this is clearly shown in our food, our music, dances and just the way we are.
Experience all these elements mixed together to form our culture. Here at the Bay View Restaurant, inside the Miramar Intercontinental Hotel,you can enjoy a delicious Panamanian dinner, and move on your chair to the rhythms of the Panamanian folkloric instruments while you are amazed by the display of beautiful and elegant “Polleras”, our national dress and one of the most spectacular folkloric dresses in the world.
The show is full allegoric with typical acoustic music and musicians. Women wear the unique 'Pollera', a hand made cotton dress complimented with precious body and head jewelry which is exhibited while they dance. Men’s typical attire is relatively simple; however their hats are finely hand-made by artisans. Their cotton shirts boast golden or pearl bottoms.
