Panama 500 is Danilo Perez's most ambitious project to date, the furthest evolution yet of what the pianist/composer calls three-dimensional music. His blend of influences makes him the ideal musical chronicler of his country's history: already a land bridge between the Americas with a vibrant indigenous culture, Panama also began to absorb European culture into its own following Balboas arrival. Perez similarly weaves together jazz and Pan-American folkloric traditions with influences from European classical music.
