This competition will make Pan more appealing to the rest of the world It's so refreshing to be able to hear a song played that almost everyone could sing along with. I am not knocking Panorama but that is a Trinidad thing, I truly believe that pan in the 21st will be our catalyst to the rest of the world.
Congratulations to all the members and management of Skiffle Bunch Steel Orchestra
