Arima All Stars / "Tobago Gal" / Panorama Preliminaries 2020
A STEELBAND could NEVER COVER a CALYPSO like THE ORIGINAL VERSION (remember: I am AN ORIGINAL CALYPSO LOVER) and this is where I DIVERGE with the PAN LOVERS ...
Arima All Stars Steel Orchestra performs for the judges at the 2020 Trinidad & Tobago National Single Pan Panorama Preliminaries held on Nov. 8th 2019 and the venue was the Arima Basketball Court. Slinger Francisco's "Tobago Gal" was the tune of choice and the arranger is Mikhail Neils.
Hmm, doubt Lord Kitchener would find the arrangements by steelbands that far removed, nor was it the intent. Kitch had a long-time relationship to pan, did he not? Wonder what Ray Holman must have thought when he composed an arrangement which for a time, changed things around until things changed back around. Even Len "Boogsie" Sharpe got a nice feeling to do something similar, on the advice of Ray, they even had Denyse Plummer sing the calypso for radio airplay to breed some familiarity amongst pan-fans and to make it eligible for Panorama Competition, which they won.
