Behind The Music


Episode 1: La Murga de Panama

Join us for our first-ever “episode” of SoH: BEHIND THE MUSICThis week we’ll have a Zoom session in which Veronica and Carlos will lead us “behind the music” of La Murga de Panama! We’ll learn more about what exactly a “murga” is, delve into the musical legacies of Willie Colón & Héctor Lavoe, and we’ll even learn to sing the lyrics, in English and en español!

Here are the slides Carlos and Veronica shared with us. Feel free to poke around to get a sense for the discussion we had if you couldn’t join us, or to dig deeper into some of the examples we explored if you were there.
