Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
I extend condolences to the family of Godwin Bowen on his untimely passing on Friday (2021 July 16). The Skiffle family greatly appreciated the work he did with the band in 2001 and 2002. He was quiet and unassuming but a giant among musicians, and T&T's music world and Pan fraternity is poorer with his passing.
My deepest condolences to the family of Godwin Bowen who was a dear friend of mine. I am the Godfather of his eldest son.
He was the arranger for one of my calypsoes in the late 1970s when we had the annual Kaiso Royal annual staff calypso competition and he did attend that competition to cheer me on.
While I no longer reside in Trinidad, I would like to contact his family to personally extend my condolences ..
Godwin was a first class musician and a very humble and honest individual and for whom I had the greatest respect.
He will surely be missed ibt members of the Pan Fraternity.
