Yes I played at a few Oxford balls when all those prim and proper girls (you) and boys got transported by our steel pan music....raised their silk gown, kicked their satin shoes, dancing till dawn to our playing, to then form a congo line all the way to the streets while drinking champagne....amusing the early passers by.
astonishing what Pan music can do!
Great interview Ms. Nicholson. Great points.
Everyone needs to read this interview. Serious stuff.
Thank you Ms. Nicholson for your love and insight into the steelpan, you have spoken like a true artist.
not taking away anything from the other women in pan
You know what i respect this individual for her love and her passion for our culture but i am not ready to crown her as an authority on our culture,i am really sorry for that although i agree with almost everything she said.
