Today February 10, 2017 marks one year since the murder of Japanese panist Asami Nagakiya. In remembrance of this special musician, the Codrington Pan Family has created a video in her honor. The premiere of the video can been seen at 12:45 p.m. local time on Trinidad & Tobago television station TV6. Please check it out.
Beautiful tribute to Asami, Codrington Pan Family.
Many Thanks to Khari and the Codrington family for remembering a great pan musician from Japan Asami Nagakiya, with their wonderful and poignant renditions of her musical pan creations and other classics beautifully arranged and professionally presented. The editing was also sensitively done and creatively inspiring.
I hope we will be able to be graced with a concert soon in North America by this very talented family and musical ensemble of dignified pan virtuosos, who proudly represent Trinidad's national instrument and musical culture. This brought tears to my eyes for a variety of reasons.
Keisha is such a skillful player, she in a class by herself, I just had to get that in, it happens each time I see greatness.
Beautiful family congratulations to the parents for a job well done. Love the tribute to Asami RIP
