Congratulation once again Salah.
Thanks Web...see you in Toronto
Thanks for the support ...join us in TO
The Salah's Steel Pan Academy ensemble played brilliantly, as it always does, and the crowd at Parc Jean Drapeau who came to watch on Sunday evening were enthusiastic and appreciative of all the bands who participated.
Trevor from WST was there filming, so there will be videos to watch.
This is an international competition, so bands from all over the world could potentially be participating in future. The day before --Saturday-- was Carnival in Montreal, with the Carifiesta parade travelling all the way through the center of the city.
Look out world! Here comes Montreal!
Congratulations to Salah for being the powerhouse behind this weekend.
