Loss to the global pan community - Ari Viitanen, Finland

Anyone remembers the highly energetic talented band from Finland in the World Steelband Festival in 2000 (Trinidad), playing Kitch's Pan in A Minor?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L50GHUa8eloThe arranger, Ari Viitanen, who also made the pans, tuned them, and led the band, was someone who had embraced the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago, in Karjaa, Finland, wholeheartedly.  Ari passed away yesterday quite suddenly, leaving many behind with great memories of his music, friendship and his unique sense of humour (check his Golden Rules on http://www.dlc.fi/~pan-ari/).Sincere condolences go to his dear family and friends. Ari, you were a true pan ambassador and will be sorely missed.  It has been a privilege to meet you and play music with you/your band for the European Steelband Festival in Sete, France, 2002.  Thanks for your wonderful contribution to the pan movement.(Picture…See More
