Hell’s Steel Orchestra Wins Antigua & Barbuda 2009 National Panorama Title Khan Cordice is winning arranger!

Antigua & Barbuda, W.I. - Hell’s Gate Steel Orchestra - the oldest band in Antigua & Barbuda, made history again for 2009 by copping Panorama championship honors, beating out four other competitors. And they did this with the youngest arranger in the competition - Khan Cordice - at their helm. The 2009 Antigua & Barbuda National Panorama was held at Carnival City (aka the Antigua Recreation Grounds), St. John’s, on the penultimate night of July with a large crowd of music lovers in attendance. Five steel orchestras participated in this year’s show - Ebonites, Gemonites, Halcyon, Harmonites and Hell’s Gate. Ebonites performed well-known Antigua calypsonian the Mighty Swallow’s Rudeboy Bacchanal (from 1983), as arranged by Aubrey “Lacu” Samuel.
