Wow. Great interview Xiaotong.


This is a very very good wonderful, insightful and helpful interview. I appreciate her comments about young Trini pannists not having a broad knowledge about what other bands are playing, other music and arrangement especially the past ones etc. She has identified a gap and that is helpful, to hear about, I believe.

Yes Jennifer, this interview was very reveling about where some of our young people are at. Every band leader should read this interview.


Very insightful and refreshing. I hope you continue to develop and grow as a player.

Great interview....puts a lot of pan people in the shade. A whole lot of truth in it.
