Maria Pancha is an old traditional song from the Margarita island to the east and north of the country.  It belongs to the group of songs named “Merengue” because of its 5/8 metric pattern and because of its origin (Margarita Island).  It is usually accompanied by the cuatro, a Venezuelan four-stringed instrument.
