Grenada Drops Steelband Panorama Ball - Organizers Not Ready For Prime Time

St. George’s, Grenada, W.I. - It is said that you can judge a society by how it treats its young, its elders and its culture… In one fell swoop, Grenada disrespected and threw much shade on all three of these factors. And the Pan season in Grenada came to an abrupt halt when hundreds of musicians turned up to perform and found there was no stage built, so after weeks of preparation, their competition was cancelled.Spicemas Corporation, the entity overseeing for staging Panorama, is led by Kirk Seetahal. Seetahal and members of his board tasked with the responsibility for Grenada’s Panorama must step down immediately. His incompetence or outright display of contempt for Grenada’s Pan culture over the past three years is obvious, well-documented and needs no further comment. read moreSee More

GROVE ROOTS ( Ladbroke Grove W10 )

Lionel" Tanker" George (1930-2017)

Posted by David V. Trotman on July 6, 2017 at 3:32am 4 Comments

We note the passing of Lionel “Tanker” George on June 17, 2017. He was originally a member of the Casablanca Steel Orchestra and a part of that exodus led by Philmore “Boots” Davidson which established City Syncopators.
