"Why is it with all the firsts and various accolades that Indians have not gravitated to the steel bands? Is it 'race' or just choice? Is there or would there ever be an Indian on the exec of PanTrinbago?"

CH,

CH, "Pan" as we call it today, derived or started with the first dustbin band, back in the mid nineteen thirties,  there were tin pans, bottles, bamboo's, bed chambers or pozey's, pot's and pan's, hub caps, ect, actualy it was there before the costic soda, and biscuit drum, before  steel drum arrived in 1945, these men has passed on, but some is remembered, Carlton "sonny" Roach, Adawell Sampsoen, Carlton "Bigs" Marshall, Winston "wolf" King, Big "daddy" Cole ect, it has to change, like the time's, as well as be crowded...

CH , we'll take it in part or in whole, some one  is gonna pay, EVEN IN HELL, SNSE is a subsidiary, 49% owned by a foreign syndicate with a buy back clause, and they WILL, take it outta someone's hide one way or the other or, proberbly we will own T&T in part, they should'nt mess with things that doesn't belong to them , the subsidiary transaction was done for this very reason ...

CH, the Y is the problem, and the problem is that, most pan ppl cannot see the "forrest" for the "sleaze / fleas blood suckers" like Copeland, Diaz, et al ect ect, the Steel band / Pan industries is a Multi-Trillion industry waiting to be plucked, where the hallways are lined with "pimps and thieves", LIKE THE FOREMENTIONED, in 2004 Selwyn Tarradath et al/and others, derived a Techono Pan project in Diego Martin area that was financed by The National Lottery Board, which somehow failed later on as the finance had mysteriously depleated, guess who was involved in the finance on the Lottery Board??? none other than Brian R.Copeland, after that he and his other "LODGE BUDDIES" we're given a mandate by his alleged relative the then PM in 2005, to research and create a new family of steel pans based on the 4ths & 5ths or "spider web tenor pan" which had already research and created by Anthony Williams, and Design Patent Trademark and Copyrighted by SNSE for and in the name of Williams, the 29 inch big tenor pan Williams derived in 1968 Copeland called his Genesis first of it's kind G-pan he forged from Williams where he recieved the country Highest Award for Williams work implementing "Plagiarism, where $81.5 million U.S. dollars of T&T tax payers money has been alotted to date, and it isn't over as yet, my GIST is a question, which country is gonna own the right's of the STEEL PAN??? PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE...
