Celebrating the culture of Azuero
The Pollera Expo
This weekend, the Cubitá museum is hosting the Pollera Expo, a free event showcasing the country’s national costume. Those who confect these elaborate designs will be on hand to explain their craft. The event takes place Saturday, September 27 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and on Sunday, September 28 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The Mejorana Festival of Guararé
The “mejorana” is the name given to the typical Panamanian guitar that is used to compose and play the traditional folklore music widely heard around the country. A festival in honor of this instrument is taking place in the district of Guararé, province of Los Santos, culminating this Sunday, September 28. Cubitá Tours is offering special packages for those wishing to get a real taste of authentic Panamanian culture.
The package is for Sunday, September 28, and includes transportation to and from the Cubitá hotel to Guararé, as well as participation in one of the traditional “tuna” groups that will be playing lively music and parading down the town’s main street. For those
who wish to dress the part, arrangements can be made to rent the traditional attire. The group will have a “VIP space” reserved for them along the parade route, and they will be accompanied by Rolando Domínguez, a “pollera” and folklore expert. Refreshments are also included, all for $105 per person.
