... Panorama was created with two intents in mind: one is to highlight the musicality and musical relevance of Pan and two is to provide high class entertainment to all lovers of music and especially Pan lovers!
How this vast undertaking is accomplished can be relatively easy or stupidly complicated!
Capitalism and Pan...in a market economy in which money making is the norm, it’s no surprise that apart from being sponsors, no big wealthy business or wealthy Trinis have seen Pan as money making adventure! In fact the bulk of the financing for Pan and Carnival activities emanate from Tax payers dollars! Yet big businesses benefit immensely from huge exposure from their sponsorships and the mammoth sales generated thru the carnival season, but none have seen it fit to pour money and other resources into developing and marketing Pan as a world instrument.
PANORAMA should be a FREE event from preliminary to the Finals!
Asking POOR and WORKING Class people to fork up unavailable moneys to listen to their neighborhood bands is unconscionable and outrageous considering the amount of wealth and finance generated by the total carnival experience! All moneys assigned to PanTrinbago should be slated for nationwide FREE Panorama at any level.
On an island nation in which only a tiny few MILLIONARES and BILLIONARES have hoarded most of the nation wealth, and in a season in which Gigantic financial profits are made, Panorama should be FREE for all, especially with past top EXECUTIVES of PANTRINBAGO running away with millions in money!
Well, PAN CRITIC missed the REAL REASON why PANORAMA was ESTABLISHED -- but I could buy him A BEER if we EVER MEET UP IN TONG!!!
I ENVY the PAN CRITIC MAN
Ah WISH ah coulda go and SHAKE HE HAN ...
