Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Remembering - Dr. Jit Samaroo - Steelband Arranger Extraordinaire!!!
Global - Dr. Jit Sukha Samaroo (Musician, Panist, Composer, and steel pan arranger) was born in Surrey Village in the Lopinot Valley, Trinidad, on 24 February 1950, the sixth of Sookram and Lakia Samaroo’s thirteen children. His love for music manifested itself at a very early age, influenced perhaps by his mother, who played the Dholak, and by ‘parang’, a Spanish-derived musical art form for which Lopinot is famous. Jit played the cuatro and guitar and at Christmas time, would accompany the village paranderos in their traditional house-to-house serenading.
Happy Birthday Jit. I remember you growing up in Arouca, you would come and arrange music for us in the Holy Trinity Choir with the nuns in the convent there. That was in the 70's you are such a humble, kind, truly genuine person. May God Bless you with long life and good health.
Happy Birthday Jit. Best wishes to you and family.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIT. I MET HIM AT HIS HOME HE IS A VERY HUMBLE GUY
Sincerely. Happy birthday and thank you Dr. Jit Samaroo.
Thank you for the many happy moments you have afforded me and the pan lovers with your brilliant and sweet musical arrangements through your illustrious career.
Words will never describe the satisfaction and the awe transmitted via your work.
Bless you on this wonderful day, I will say thanks to your parents for the work that they have done as I am sure that the creator will say to them. " These are my children in whom I am well pleased".
Happy birthday and God bless you.
Happy birthday greetings ...best of health and well being

I am the French director of the film Pan in A minor that I shot during the 1987 panorama. At that time I was able to meet Jit Samaroo who gave me an interview. During this year's preliminaries, we had chosen to concentrate on the arrangement of Pan in A minor. In fact, Renegades, narrowly beaten by Phase II, was going to finish second in the final. For me Pan in A minor is one of the most beautiful arrangements in the history of Panorama.And Jit was such a nice guy ! Respect!
