Listen to Voices: Jose Tito Thomas

Jose Tito Thomas José Tito Thomas was born in Bocas del Toro, in 1936, and grew up in both Bocas and Colón. His paternal grandparents came to Panama from Nicaragua, and his maternal grandparents came from Italy. His grandmother from Nicaragua was of mixed Spanish and indigenous heritage, and José is proud of his culturally-mixed background; nevertheless, he sees himself as a "Bocatoreno" (a native from Boca). He also loves music, particularly Caribbean music, calypso, salsa, and the "cha cha cha." José studied architecture for four years, has been married for fifty years, and has five children.
