Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Today, in this Holy Month of Ramadan. The Most Merciful Allah has called back his servant my mother (Iris Wilson). She was 102 years, having given a long innings. We are grateful. I consider my mother a steelpan activist as she was instrumental in having her yard used as a "panyard" for the original Flamingoes in the village. She was the Matriach of the famiy. (RIP Ummi)

That is defiantly a pan classic by the Gay Flamingoes. Thanks to IsDePanInMe for posting it. For the record, according to married2atrini TB, the arranger was Marshall Blackburn from Sande Grande. Quedose to Mr Blackburn for a great arrangement. Now who can give us a date for this recording?
