Forged out of the civil rights and identity struggles of a young nation, the steel pan remains the only acoustic instrument developed in the 20th century. The music and this versatile and organic instrument has spread far beyond the shores of Trinidad and Tobago over the past 100 years. On the island and throughout the Caribbean this instrument is referred to as “The Movement”.
The International Pan conference which is being held between the 5-9th August will close with this international pan competition. This event will bring together participants from thirty-eight steel band playing countries from around the world competing against each other for the title of ICP Champions 2015.
Steel bands from Japan, England, USA, France, Canada, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Marten and Jamaica will be competing for the grand price in this historic event.
Don't miss this opportunity to witness the live event, chat with friends, family and other pan lovers from around the world.
See for yourself why the Steel Pan has become a worldwide phenomenon across many countries. Join in and enjoy the sweet ,sweet sound of pan.
Thanks to those responsible for making this happen.
This is a KEITH DIAZ production from START TO FINISH -- don't forget that!
Does it matter? you give Diaz too much credit, he is just the PAWN in the game.
If they get 10,000 sign-ups for this broadcast (and I will be very very disappointed if they did not when Trinis in foreign are always beating dey chest shouting: I LOVE PAN! I LOVE PAN!) then they could say that the EVENT WAS A MONSTROUS SUCCESS. They made the "BUY IN" cheap which was extremely clever -- even if the announcement was a little late in coming.
ALL PRAISES TO KEITH DIAZ!!! KEITH DIAZ is DOING SOMETHING FOR PAN.
What was the criteria used to select the bands representing Trinidad
Elliot, the top bands from panorama.
You said there are 38 countries competing and mentioned 9. ("Steel bands from Japan, England, USA, France, Canada, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Marten and Jamaica will be competing for the grand prize in this historic event"...). You omitted to include Trinidad and Tobago and other countries in that sentence?
Will somebody please list all the bands which will be participating. I am yet to see a full list.
Bands appearing in the competition are: Arima Golden Symphony, bp Renegades, Curepe Scherzando, Massy Trinidad All Stars, NGC Steel Xplosion, Pan Elders, PCS Nitrogen Silver Stars, Petrotrin Phase II Pan Groove, Republic Bank Exodus, Supernovas, T&TEC Tropical Angel Harps and Buccooneers Steel Orchestra.
The line-up of foreign bands is as follows: US — Pan Coalition, Brooklyn Steel Orchestra and Mosaic Steel Orchestra; Canada — Pan Fantasy of Ontario and Salah’s Steelband Academy of Quebec; UK — Ebony Steelband of England and Calypsociation Steel of France and a few others.
Thank you Claude and others for the list of bands.
