THE FAILURE OF PAN EVOLVING IN NEW YORK.

I am putting this out there for consideration, it may be controversial to some as well as with some others on point. Some may not want to see the logic and truth about what I state, my hope is that we all can look at it and realize we must make some substantial changes with how we view and operate with the instrument, orchestra and panist and  this is as it  relates to New York.  Where can I start. Elders of pan have wrongfully thought the youth the old ways of pan in Trinidad and Tobago, being a badjohn, maintaining rivalries and so on, fortunately for the youth, they rejected some of those old ideals and have coalesced beautifully putting their older counterparts to shame.  Here are some other things  we must consider.(1) Anything we do or any where we need to go to advance the instrument, orchestra and panist starts with leadership. Leadership that embodies, vision, unselfishness, understanding, a willingness to seek advise where needed, admit when we don't know something , try…See More

Letter to Steel Pan Family

To My Steelband Family:

 

Since 1960 this man has been tuning pans for the City Symphony Orchestra on St. Paul’s Street (behind the bridge) in Port of Spain.
