She dropped the ball on pan in Carifesta’
Pan Trinbago is most upset with Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, as well as the producer and promoter of the Island Beats concert that will bring the curtain down on Carifesta XIV on August 24.
The show, at the Queen’s Park Savannah, will feature international stars Shaggy, Kassav, Calypso Rose, Machel Montano and other local acts.
But Pan Trinbago feels it is sad that pan will not be represented at the concert, except for the playing of the national anthem.
A fiery Dane Gulston, Pan Trinbago’s external relations officer, blasted the minister for her response.
merrytones,you are correct, it's only ah few large bands gettin all the glory and money.They cudda have The Codrington Pan Family open that show and turn it up, but certain people view the steelband outta place in that kinda show.
Misunderstanding or Course Correction?
