Congratulations Dr. Len "Boogsie" Sharpe, well deserved

great achievement, best wishes

Congratulations to Dr. Len “Boogsie” Sharpe for receiving such great honor. He is a super great Pan player and an excellent panorama arranger. May he give GOD ALMIGHTY the glory.

The magic and beauty of our instrument as only our NEW Dr.Len "Boogsie" Sharpe can demonstrate.Boogsie has proven that the instrument can be played like a piano, whereas other instruments that are incapable of playing harmony are limited to melodic playing. The pan can play a melody and accompany itsel fwithin a strict pulse or beat, not entangling the measures/bars. If this music is written it will certainly be difficult for a musician to play on the fly. Congratulations on this achievement Bro.
