Panasocalyp Phase I
To my friends and fans. My name is Reginaldo Bowen born and raised in the Republic of Panama. As a child my father worked for the Panama Canal. I then attended Rainbow City High (Former USA,Canal Zone)., where I became interested in music. Briefly, my Mom used to cook for my uncle and I would take his food for him, and evertime I got to the door, I would hear him playing his saxophone. He took me one night to hear him played in his band. He would play and close his eyes and shake his body. He seemed very happy with what he was doing. I became encourage by him and I learned and play the saxophone too. At age 15, I wrote composed and produced my own song and played in a local band. The songs were entilted 'No Pienso Caer Otra Vez and Please Care For Me'. Panama is a multicultural country where the music are all mixed. That made me a greater musician whom can associate with many types of music. I became interest more so in producing, composing and writing songs because of that influenza. I was not able to be a part of the recording of my own songs because my Mom had me immigrated to the USA. I graduated from Highland Park High School NJ, Honorable discharge US ARMY. While in the Army at Turley Barracks Germany, I use to do local background singing with Johnny Wilder, whom sang 'Always and Forever' Heatwave band. As I got more involved in my music and doing Karaoke at clubs, I got more inspired by my friends to continue my music and that is what I did. I am more involved in Calypso,Reggea,Soca,Salsa,Reggeaton,Caribbean music, HipHop, Soul,Jazz, Gospel and R&B music. I love to write, produce, compose sing music and design. I come from a family of musicians so I guess that speaks for itself. Thanks for all your support in this beautiful field of performance art, 'Music'. TRULY REGGIE.
