A glorious sounding and colorful marching band and drill team from Panama had the distinction of being the only entry of its type from Latin America in this year’s 125 anniversary of the Rose Parade® in Pasadena.

The 257 member group, Herberto Lopez JDC’s, comprised of 212 musicians and the rest dancers, song girls and teachers-coordinators, played a repertoire of Panamanian folk songs, which they said was a tribute to the Panama Canal Centennial taking place August 15, 2014.

Prior to the Rose Parade, the group participated in the annual  Tournament of Roses  “Band Fest,” and played in Disneyland’s “A Fantasy Christmas Parade” as well as other events.

    It seems all about the corporate entertainment and the dedication of the artists toward the music.
