La Orquesta de la Papaya


The Papaya Orchestra was born in 2002 and since then it has carried Central America´s new sound and its musical images to global stages. The Orchestra is made up of 19 musicans from the 7 countries of the isthmus that combine the sound of Nicaragua´s ancient marimba de arco, Garífuna drums from Honduras, turtle shells from Belize, Pre-hispanic clay drums from Guatemala, mejoranera and peasant violins from Panama with more conventional instruments such as piano, electric guitar, bass, drums and accordeon.

The Papaya Orchestra was born in 2002 and since then it has carried Central America´s new sound and its musical images to global stages. The Orchestra is made up of 19 musicans from the 7 countries of the isthmus that combine the sound of Nicaragua´s ancient marimba de arco, Garífuna drums from Honduras, turtle shells from Belize, Pre-hispanic clay drums from Guatemala, mejoranera and peasant violins from Panama with more conventional instruments such as piano, electric guitar, bass, drums and accordeon. Papaya´s music is cheerful and festive. It mixes traditional sones and pasillos from the Pacific coasts with calypsos, bullerengues, cumbias from Panama, parandas, zapateados and a wide range of rhythms, from punta-rock to jamming jazz. This Orchestra has appeared with enormous success before audiences in New Orléans, Mexico´s Cervantino Festival, Barcelona´s Forum, International Arts Festival in Costa Rica and, in April 2005, they took on their first Central American tour performing in theaters and public spaces in Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Belize.
