I've been suffering from flu all week and am still feeling rotten. Luckily though I stumbled upon Samy y Sandra Sandoval who have cheered me up. It turns out that Panama is a real hotbed of great music featuring accordion - who knew ?
Brother and sister they started performing when they were just children and just got bigger and bigger. They're now megastars with 15 albums behind them and lots of hits. They play a popular form of típico or Pindín, the local folk music.
El Pindín Caliente.
Their big carnaval hit from 1994 - Gallina Fina. This track really gets going a the 2 minute mark when Sandra takes over the vocals.
And this one is bang up to date, a collaboration with pop-reggaeton-rapper Comando Tiburon - Bla Bla Bla.
