Are we here on WST to discuss old time story or for the purpose of bringing about definite and long lasting change for the benefit of all steelpan men and steelpan women

Having observed the attitude of we /us the members of WST on the forum,,there was redicule,,hate,,non co-operation,,silence,,forgiveness,,and still therafter redicule,,which as grown ups I found it to be very shameful,,2013 was a year of attacks and egotism at the ending of the year there was a resolution I do presume,, for betterment,progress,,focus towards Pantrinbago,,,but it seems to  me that  inner discontent/hate for persons that do produce  a tangible program/Steelpan Wise ,,are…

Mr. J.E. Clarke,

Any 'links' to Suriname's Hindustani music would be greatly appreciated:

I try not to partake in some of WST's 'the bitter clamour of...eager tongues'!

All the best to you,

Terry

Mr. J.E. Clarke,

Thanks for your response re my request for a sample of Hindustani music on steelpan. I am not of indian heritage, I happen to be black, born in the British Caribbean Virgin Island of Tortola but lived in several other islands...with varying degrees of English, French, Dutch, Portugese and Spanish influences. And I have worked and exchanged music with colleagues from India and Pakistan.

I LOVE music. At age 8 I had my own short wave radio and listened to music from all over the world, but the Caribbean in particular. I may not always know the language of many songs but if I like the MUSIC (the rhythm, arrangement etc) I am hooked.

Once I began working, I started collecting music LPS, 45s, 78s, casettes etc. So, I had, at one point nearly 5000 items of music of various genres....I recently got rid of most European and R&B items after painstakingly digitizing them.

What I lack is music from the Guianas (the old names?). I do have a few items from Guyana (formerly British Guiana), but NOTHING from Suriname or French Guiana.

So to hear Hindustani music on pan would be a pleasure.....to ('critique")... be able to compare or contrast the rhythmic style to various types of (East) Indian music. NOT TO FIND FAULT. I love music too much to be that petty!!

Respectfully,

Terry.
