  • Hi,

    The full title of The tune by Harmonites is "Tribute to Swallow - 50 Years".


  • Hi,

    There are a couple of inaccuracies in this release. 

    1. This is not a Junior Panorama.

    2. The persons you have listed as the arrangers are in fact the Composers and vice versa.

    3. The song to be played by Harmonites is "Tribute to Swallow" - performed by De Panman and composed by De Original Defosto Himself. The sponsor of the band is Carib Seas.

    4. Gemonites is sponsored by WIOC

    5. Hells Gate is sponsored by LIME
