Amrit Samaroo - Standout Panist, Composer and Arranger Speaks on Panorama 2012 and more
Global - In an exclusive interview with When Steel Talks, steelpan musician, composer and arranger - Amrit Samaroo, shares his experiences, visions and overall thoughts on Panorama, his dad (Jit Samaroo) its past, present and future...
“Well if the judges aren't satisfied, I can't win. It's simple as that. Panorama is, was and will always be a competition that has to be judged. The judges job is to award points that reflect their opinion of a piece of music. If I didn't get 100 out of 100, I want to know why. They better see me something other than just points and a "Good Luck" or "Happy Carnival" on that score sheet. I can't stand seeing comments that constantly say "Good", but points that say 18/35. Tell me where the other 17 points gone... or why it wasn't "Great." " ... Amrit Samaroo
Keep up the great work Amrit.
