The folk music group “Samy and Sandra Sandoval” was chosen to represent Panama in the International Song Festival of “Viña del Mar 2018”, which will take place from February 20 to 25 in Chile, as confirmed by one of the members of the band.
“I do not promise that we will win that seagull (prize of the contest gold, silver and platinum), but Panama must be held very high, the music we do and that is nameless,” Samy Sandoval told the Panamanian media.
“Los Patrones de la Cumbia” will interpret “Como Gozo”, a song composed by Raúl Mendoza, at the event.
The duo also took the opportunity to release the video of their latest song “A Ella Le Gusta El Hombre Viejo”, a song that Sandoval says speaks about “realities of our society”.
Tenemos el honor de representar a Panamá en el próximo festival de Viña del Mar en la categoría folclórica y la canción seleccionada es "Como Gozo" Esperamos dar lo mejor de nosotros y gracias a ustedes por contribuir a que seamos parte de esto. #samyysandrasandoval #viñadelmar2018 #panama #festival
