masai hall replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion STEELBAND MUSIC: Are there any LIMITS?
"The high resonance sound (tone) of rubber on tempered steel, makes the music of the steel orchestra extremely difficult to the unfamiliar ear. Steelband music is UNIQUE."

masai hall replied to Glenroy R Joseph's discussion Pan People must "fix" Pan Trinbago, not wait for the government of the courts to do it for them.
""--- too much focus on financial improprieties by all concerned individuals , instead of on mismanagement and poor leadership in general."  Great observation Glenroy; I always thought the bickering over small dollars sounds petty."

HELLO MASAI: I see U R keeping an eye on them hmm, they don't know that "Pan" has already gone past the conventional instruments, since 1960 "In a Monastery Garden, Voices fo Spring, Roses of the South, Poet and Peasant," pan can can play any kind of music and then some, Robert Greenidge has demonstated this, when he worked with Taj Mahal a tune called "Curry", I was in the studio with "Robbie" when he worked with country and western singer Lynn Anderson, Earth Wind and Fire, Larry Graham, before Jimmy Buffett, Pan Am North Stars with pianoist Winnefred Atwell, and the Marinottes Choir with Joslyn Pierre, most people don't know and or have'nt heard these musical pieces, Stay on them MASAI, I'll do the same...
