With the pressure of the National Panorama competition behind her, Pan Trinbago’s president Beverley Ramsey-Moore enjoyed the sweet sounds of the steel pan on Tragarete Road, Port of Spain, on Carnival Monday night.

The event was a joint venture between Pan Trinbago and the St James Carnival Improvement Committee where a Steelband Bomb competition, with the theme Keeping Pan in Carnival, was organised for the first time.

According to Ramsey-Moore, “This is an opportunity for the smaller bands to come out and try to earn some money. After the Single Pan finals they have nothing to do so this is for them. As we speak the same thing is happening in San Fernando and Arima.

“The Eastern Region in conjunction with Mayor Lisa Morris is in charge up there while the South Central region of Pan Trinbago is doing their thing in south.”

Ramsey-Moore said each region got $100,000 to organise their competition.

The hit of the night was the World Wide Steel Orchestra which performed How Great Thou Art in honor of late pan pioneers Hugh Borde and Neville Jules.

For the dearly departed...from the MASTER at WORK.

Len 'Boogsie' Sharpe - How Great Thou Art

A good initiative to benefit single pan bands.

Another item added to the checklist of ACCOMPLISHMENTS for Madam President.

Great is thy FAITHFULNESS...
