Miami Carnival Panorama Steel Band Competition Set to Showcase Trinidad and Tobago’s Rich Heritage Through Melodic Steel Band Performances
Miami Carnival’s annual Panorama will take place on Friday, October 5, 2018, at the Central Broward Regional Park(3700 Northwest 11th Place, Lauderhill, FL 33311). Patrons will enjoy the sweet sounds of world-renowned steel bands as they compete for the crown of Panorama Champion 2018. One of the staple events within the cultural offerings during the Miami Carnival, Panorama promises to be music inspired, family event. Caribbean Airlines is the official Panorama airline carrier.
The Steel Pan was invented in the 1930’s on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. It is also the only instrument invented in the 20th Century. Today it is appreciated all over the world and still has room for growth.
“Pan is the rhythm that fuels the lifeblood that flows through the heart of Carnival,” says Dexter Bleasdell, Steelband Coordinator.
Panorama continues to be a music lover favorite, bringing both old heads and the younger Caribbean-American pan-lovers together for a day of melodic, rhythmic and peaceful music. Not only the national instrument of the birthplace of Carnival, Trinidad & Tobago, but the steel pan also holds great historical significance in the world of music. The steel pan is the only new instrument invented in the 20th Century.
“Since its inception, this instrument has taken the world by storm, with its range and melody. Like Reggae this is a music of and from the people “ghetto people,” as they strive and try to establish a culture that is truly their own, hence the ownership that is placed on the music from calypso to Soca to Pan. We choose to share it with the world,” states Miami Carnival Executive Director Sydney Roberts.
Although a part of the Carnival experience for many years, the first Panorama was not held in T&T until 1963. In Miami, steel bands were always a part of Carnival. Bands traveled from Orlando and even from New York to participate in the city’s Carnival festivities. The host committee is committed to preserving this rich Caribbean tradition within the blueprint of #MiamiCarnival.
Miami Carnival Panorama will be held on Friday, October 5, 2018, from 4pm-11pm at Central Broward Regional Park.
