Paisas (Medellin Women) in Panama A short video I took when I was in Panama a couple years ago. These ladies are sisters from Medellin, Colombia. Paisa is the name of people from the Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío region in Colombia.
This video is a collection of testimonials by persons of color from Panama and abroad, about what it's like to be black in Panama.
In Panama City’s colorful and colonial Casco Viejo, Pam Hetlinger, “The Girl From Panama,” combines tropical with urban.

African ancestry in Panama has influenced the culture in many ways, African slaves were taken to Panama during the transatlantic slave, as well as many Afro Carribean who settled in Colon while building the Panama Canal. Panama is also the Birth of Spanish language reggae, Many Panamanians of Jamaican ancestry started this trend of music, if it wasnt for the Jamaican ancestry in Panama, thier would be no Reggaton! Panama has also gained its independence from Colombia in 1903.
On our last evening in Panama, Caravan Tours gave everyone a farewell dinner. As part of the entertainment for the evening, we were treated to traditional Panamanian music and dance. We also learned about the intricate formal dresses worn by Panamanian women. And yes, that is me (Rick) dancing in the last few minutes of the video. I was invited to dance by the woman you see me dancing with. I tried to follow her lead, but I admit that I was not very good--although Kathy seemed impressed by her words at the very end of the video. This video was recorded on June 28, 2013 with a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera.
