Panorama!!!!!!! - Antigua/Barbuda

  Panorama is a "Musical" competition held annually in many regions  where pan has been adopted. This musical event was popularized by Trinidad and Tobago-though in Antigua Panorama started in the late fifties in Trinidad 1963-The notion that Musicians in Antiguan are incapable of judging Panorama,is ludicrous, that rules out musical giants Like Roland Prince, Dr Roberts and others. The irony, except for one, the arranges here are not musicians, have no musical training, yet there…

Stafford Joseph responds to Pepe Francis and Laurence Richards comments

Colleagues,

The fourth paragraph of my response to  the comment made by my Brother, Kuma Rodney, is clear. He is and will always be my Brother and I will always respect his opinions and recognize his rights. I cannot choose for my Brother, he is a free man.  I know that I am a free man, because I chose God  to be my Master.

 

One Pan! One Love!!!

Stafford Joseph responds to Kuma Rodney - Antigua Panorama Conflict

To date, almost twenty (20) years later, we maintain  the view that, “while MAJORITY might win, MAJORITY is not necessarily…

Antigua 2013 National Panorama 2013

Hells Gate, from the inception of the introduction of overseas arrangers and adjucators in our National Panorama, has always remained opposed to the idea. From my personal experience, Rising Sun Steel Orchestra and Hells Gate Steel Orchestra were always opposed to the idea, notwithstanding being in the minority.

We are of the view that Antigua's National Panorama is a national event and that ous nationals must be showcased and given the challenge and opportunity to advance…
