Trinidad and Tobago calypsonian "Roaring Lion" (22 February 1908 – 11 July 1999), who during his 65-year career which began in the early 1930s and is best known for his compositions "Ugly Woman" (1933), "Mary Ann" and "Netty, Netty", which are still performed today, was the grandfather of Alfonso Ribeiro aka Carlton Banks. The song "If You Wanna Be Happy", which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on 18 May 1963, as well as the R&B singles chart, is based on Roaring Lion's "Ugly Woman".See More

V.S. Naipaul said that coffee only tastes good to the Trinidadian after it crosses the Atlantic twice. I am of the opinion that PAN only sounds good to the Trinidadian ...

... after they cross the Atlantic ONCE and start developing the cultural hunger so common to EXPATS from all countries around the world. So doh bother me now with all the LOVE FOR CULTURE and SENTIMENTALITY.Bertel Gittens and Oswald Alexander and Allima Garcia and Gerard Clarke and Gavin Adams -- sitting down in Trinidad waiting for Cecil Hinkson and Rudy Kendall and odw and the new Nancy to come back home and SHOW THE LOVE FOR THE PAN.See More

1963 - Pan History - Harmonites Steel Orchestra formed in Trinidad. The band Solo Harmonites has its genesis in 1963 when a group of teenagers from Egypt village, Second Caledonia, Barataria, Trinidad came together to form a steel band, which was originally known as Wonderland. Under the leadership of one Mr. Fredericks, the band endured a name change to “Harmonites” when it was discovered that there was another steel band by the name of Wonderland. Mr. Fredericks migrated shortly afterwards and the mantle of leadership fell to Mr. Winston “Skull” Fleming, captain and Mr. Vincent “Hueloy” Lila Yip Young as Manager. click for morehttp://ow.ly/g1rF302A9uz
