it would be fair to all if there are a few Judges included from overseas,

Is there any news on which bands are competing?

See link above for more details...this is the information for the countries participating. The operative word here is SELECTED.

Thirty (30) Steelbands shall be selected to compete in the international Panorama as follows:-

Twelve (12) from Trinidad and Tobago
Five (5) from the Caribbean and Virgin Islands
Five (5) from North America
Five (5) from Europe
Two (2) from Asia
One (1) from Africa

International Panorama should mean international judges. Otherwise what is the difference between a local Panorama.

What kind of music will they have to play? Jazz, Pop, Classics, Calypso, Soca, Power-soca, Latin.

Do they all play a test-piece with different arrangement.

Hope this info helps....

VERY VERY interesting ! NOT carnival, so will listeners be in for a MUSICAL treat? If foreign judges are brought in, their sole interest is to judge MUSIC right? THEY know nothing about theatrics on the carnival stage. PURE unadulterated MUSIC. Could Trinidad give a foreign judge something to talk about when he or she goes back home? Let's see.....    

What will be interesting is the 12 bands from Trinidad, could it be the 10 from the finals and any 2 bands that didn’t qualify for the finals. 

I hope foreign judges will be in this one

This competition is a very good idea.

Question, how often will this event be held ? A brilliant idea is this on a three yr.cycle or is it to early to predict ? Well done Pan Trinbago and or the great minds behind the executing of this event.!!  

I wish Pan Trinbago well on this venture but I ain't   ready to Congratulate yet, (they say "Don't count Eggs in Fowl Bottom") you don't know how many inside..lol
