Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
With the entire country on lockdown, steelbands across the country aren’t able to practice together anymore .. but we didn’t let this stop us!! We all have our instruments at home and are continuing to practice together remotely .. 16 of our band members collaborated to put together a video of our rendition of Wishing on a Star .. All performed separately at home and put together .. LOCKDOWN CAN’T STOP US!
This is great. Please give some info on what platform you used to accomplish this. Other steel bands want to know!
DEY MAKE BEVERLEY and PAN TRINBAGO LOOK REAL BACKWARD!!!
Oh, ah forget -- ah does always call BEVERLEY -- BACKWARD BEVERLEY!!!
Like PAN DOH HAVE NO SEASON for THIS STEELBAND!!!
AH WISH THEY GET AH THOUSAND VIEWS ON THIS FORUM!!!
That you so much for that. Wonderful, calming feels like a cool sweet breeze just passed over me. Thanks.
I can see this going far especially when players live far from panyards or cant leave home due to weather conditions.
MR. GERALD CLARKE: I am putting you IN CHARGE of DEVELOPING EQUIVALENT PROJECTS in TRINIDAD and TOBAGO ... you have GLOBAL VISION!!!
I am going to CALL BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE and tell her to APPOINT YOU THE CZAR of ONLINE PAN MUSIC PRODUCTION!!!
GUYANA was THE FIRST COUNTRY outside of TRINIDAD to accept STEELBAND MUSIC and ENGLAND WAS THE SECOND.
Now, THE PEOPLE in TRINIDAD doh have NO UNDERSTANDING of THINGS ON THE OUTSIDE (although they believe that THEY RULE THE WORLD OF PAN) ... so they CANNOT UNDERSTAND England's role in TAKING PAN MUSIC GLOBAL!!!
(But in THE MIDDLE of all this -- IF ANTIGUA claims to be THE INVENTOR of the STEELBAND ... I eh have NO PROBLEMS with that!!! After all, which ISLAND first got invited to the FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN to showcase THE CARIBBEAN STEELBAND ... check allyuh PAN HISTORY!!!)
But TRINIDAD got to catch up on THE TECH -- get your HEADS out of the PANORAMA STUPIDNESS and let us MOVE FORWARD!!! (Ah mean if ah ARRANGER -- THE BEST PANORAMA ARRANGER IN TRINIDAD could play an 8-minute CALYPSO and go for FIVE MINUTES STRAIGHT without TOUCHING THE MELODY and still COME SECOND and have PEOPLE SCREAMING -- then ALL IS LOST in the PANORAMA STUPIDNESS ... RIGHT ALEXICA!!!)
TIME TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT TRINIDAD STEEELBAND MUSIC!!!
This is 2020 -- BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE is POISON TO GLOBAL PAN MUSIC!!!
Beautiful, nothing more needed to be said.
