Why neglect YUH MIA
Yuh making me FEEL SAD
MIA and STEELBAND
Is the YOUNG CULTURE OF TRINIDAD
Now I have to admit that neither Anslem Douglas nor Mark Loquan has ever done ANYTHING Calypso-wise that I have ever liked. So from the start I thought that her TUNE OF CHOICE was WRONG. But the BIRDSONG EXECUTIVE went with the program. And if they did not know better then, they certainly don't know any better NOW.
What does this "hints of Venezuelan Tonada, Afro Cuban Jazz, Samba, flamenco and even Bach" have to do with THE TRINIDAD PANORAMA?
The "TRINIDAD STEELBAND PANORAMA" is about CALYPSO AND STEELBAND. If AMERICANS want to learn about JAZZ they stay in AMERICA. If they want to learn about AFRO CUBAN JAZZ they go to CUBA. If they want to learn about SAMBA they go to BRAZIL. FLAMENCO: SPAIN; and BACH: EUROPE!!!
And if they come to TRINIDAD: CALYPSO and STEELBAND is the CULTURE OF TRINIDAD. So they in the RIGHT PLACE!!!

I can understand. I remember this calypso. What don't you understand?
Yolanda: I am glad that you can understand that CALYPSO. It would be nice if you give us a FULL BLOWN explanation. I have always loved reading Calypso Lyrics (as much as listening to them) and reviews and interpretations of CALYPSO.
