Notes

Abstract:
The caption on the back reads: "The 'Tamborito,' Panama's National dance, is a strange medley of modern coquetry overlaid on a background of primitive and sinuous movements, expressive reminiscence of a romantic past. Drums of the slave days were the same as those used today directing the movements of the dance with sometimes weird, sometimes gay, compelling rhythmic beat."
