"It's sad but most "players" just bang on their instruments. They do not play the pans with the love and sweetness that results in a more pleasing tone. I cringe every time I hear someone flogging a pan. Play the pans…"
Hi again James , not exactly sure if he is from Arima but I have a very good friend from Arima , Herman Brown , he used to work at the Trinidad and Tobago
consulate here in Toronto before returning home about 10 years ago to take up the post of chief immigration officer . He has since retired .He lives on Leotaud Lands near Omeara rd . I don't know if you know this area of Arima .
I'll certainly do that. No question about it, you're going to have a fantastic carnival season. I'm going home on Dec. 17th. I'll be there for Christmas. It's been a long time since I've spent a Christmas in Trinidad with family. I'm so looking forward. I'm not sure I'll stay for carnival but I'll see. Wishing you a happy holiday season.
