Panama is wonderful two step which has remained popular and very much recorded right down to the present day. It should not be confused with the equally well loved Panama Rag (1904) by William C. Polla. Its form is AABBACCDDA with a 4-bar introduction, which doubles as an interlude between the D- and A-strains, and an 8-bar coda whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. The cover of the original sheet music shows an exotic plantation scene perhaps set in Panama itself.
Panama was published by Leo Feist, New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
