This is one of my favorite songs right now. I’ve been following my fellow Panamanian hermanos Los Rakas for awhile now. These Panamanians were raised in the Bay area and coined their music the “PanaBay Sound,” a mixture of Bay area beats with that Panamanian flavor.
For their latest single, however, they went back home to Panama, connected with Panamanian reggae star Kafu Banton and created “Raka Party,” a banger that’s perfect for any carnival or independence day celebration.
Appropriately, the video was filmed during the carnival celebrations a couple of months ago in Panama. Man, I need to get back. Check it out!
