This sweet soul inspired double header harks back to Panama in the late 60′s, a time when musicians fearlessly combined and brilliantly executed styles that reflected their multicultural environment.

'Moving Grooving' and 'Hiko Iko' are both ultra rare hand clapping, foot stomping soul workouts courtesy of the Greaves brothers, Frankie and Franklyn. 'Moving Grooving' is featured on Soundway Records's third release in the Panama series titled Panama! 3, compiled by Quantic and Roberto Gyemant AKA Beto.

Both tracks were originally served up on a super limited 45 on Segraves Records in 1969 and and highlight the massive influence of American soul music on musica Panamena during and after the black power cultural movement in the US. A reference to the early work of the godfather of soul, James Brown, may seem a tad lazy but it's about as honest as it gets.

Tracks:

Fredrick Clarke - Soul Chombo
Jungle Rat USA - Just Love One Another
We're Still Strong
