Antigua on the ball! Again. Anthony Williams told me, that when TASPO arrived in London to perform at the Festival of Britain in 1951, they met Hells Gate leaving, having already played. So yes, the Antiguans were first. This is also the Steel orchestra that was drilled in the living room of Dame Bertha Higgins and her Music Teacher sisters, in the 1940ies. Those of you who are old enough to remember those days will know how revolutionary that was. Hells Gate has a venerable history and it seems that the Antiguan government believes, that pan must be part of Carifesta. They have got that right.
Lilian:When TRINIDADIANS got the news that ANTIGUA was going to be FIRST at the FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN -- dey get BAZODEE and run and FORM TASPO!!!
