Meet Khan Cordice - Director, Educator, Performing Artist and Arranger - UpClose!

Global - ....Even at a younger age, Khan Cordice’s talent was set in stone, when as a mere teenager he surpassed veteran musicians in the field of arranging in the Moods of Pan festival in his country back in 2008, triumphing that night. Months later he proceeded to repeat his winning ways and garner more accolades in the even larger annual steelband music competition known as ‘Panorama.’....Now, with the formalities (music degrees) under his belt, and an even wider worldview of music at his command, a humble but quietly confident Khan Cordice is set to change the world, one initiative, and one student at a time in his country, sharing his knowledge and experience. At the same time, his evolution as an artist and musician extraordinaire maintains, unfolding, one note at a time. Here is his story - to date… in WST’s live interview. read more, check out interviewSee More

"I just realize that some of you guys see panorama as the final night only.But to us Pan People, panorama begins in the panyard on the first night of practice, until all the instruments and equipment reach back home after final night. "

In defence of Panorama

As if the amount of heat used in tuning a pan is insufficient Dr Keith Rowley, our Prime Minister, seems intent on adding more fire to the pan thing. Or are his pronouncements on Panorama at the Laventille 123 celebration a veiled threat to Pan Trinbago? I read in the Express of April 18, that Dr Rowley said that Panorama has out- lived its usefulness. I beg to disagree. In my opinion when examined critically the role Panorama has played and continues to play in the land of its birth makes Dr Rowley’s statement without merit. Among the countless reasons why it should be maintained, let me mention a few salient ones:- • Competition is still the best way internationally to hone one’s skills. It’s a known fact that Trinidad and Tobago has the best pannists in the universe and it’s the way to continue producing and maintaining the cutting edge. • Panorama is the biggest seller during the Carnival season. It is the only competition/show that fills the North and Grand Stands. In addition to…See More

Claude Gonzales replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion Warning to EXPATRIATES (and others) from the United States Department of State
"It's kind of ironic that his warning was issued right after A TRINIDADIAN was appointed AMBASSADOR to TRINIDAD and TOBAGO (an historic event). Worst of all is that if TRUMP wins the PRESIDENCY I will get deported back to Trinidad since I live…"
