Tune of the Day: Himno Istmeño

National anthem of Panama

The national anthem of Panama was originally a school song which the composer Jorge Santos arranged for its new functions. Santos, who was a native of Spain, went to Panama City in 1889 and lived there to the time of his death. The “Himno Istmeño” (“Hymn of the Isthmus”) was declared the country's official national anthem in 1903, after the separation of Panama from Colombia.
