Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
CONGRATULATIONS!!! BTW - In MY opinion, "you was robbed" in the Panorama finals. NO dissin' Boogsie, but MAN! All Stars was ON POINT!!! (Again, MY opinion.)
Ghost. Who Does More Than Talk. REGARDLESS of what happens tomorrow, I put MY money where my mouth is, and WALKED THE WALK! And, THAT is what HISTORY will record; not Talk...WALK! Hope to see you all tomorrow. Have a great, safe evening!
This adds a further History to the Steelband movement, First Silver Stars now All Stars. Great Stuff, Congratulations!
Peter, I like how you are deLight-ed with All Stars.LOL. Bertel Starlift does not play the same mas every year. This year was China In it's Glory, last year was an Indian mas and if you go back through the many years Starlift won downtown on Mondays you will see what I'm talking about.
I concede Gerard! I wish someone would say the same for All Stars!
Ambidextrous Peter,but yeah a bit more left handed than right handed, so you will get half a case of the beers!
Looks like both of us is the same Gerard,
All Stars won by DEFAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mea culpa, mea culpa.
All right, pan people, I have a concession.
It is ironic that my band should be the one to disprove one of my arguments for moving panorama to later in the year, which is that the demands of panorama makes it virtually impossible for steelbands to make a credible presentation on the road at carnival.
Obviously, it can be done by a well organized, mature and professional organization such as Trinidad all Stars.
So I was wrong.
However I still maintain that for the future growth and development of the Trinidad Panorama as the international standard setter for the steelband,it should be de-coupled from carnival and the carnival mentality, and there are several other reasons why I think this would make sense..
I'm sure we can come up with other ways of enjoying and celebrating the pan at carnival time, and especially over the critical carnival weekend.
