Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Veteran steelpan music song writer and educator Mark Loquan raised the valid question about the lack of information on and visibility -any at all - of the Junior panorama in Trinidad and Tobago. Mr. Loquan has consistently championed music education in schools.
Today was the finals of the Junior Panorama, yet based on the total apparent lack of live media coverage - certainly online, on any Trinidad & Tobago radio outlet, or tv station - one would never know that.
Every year the coverage of the Junior Panorama has gotten worse.
This is a classic case of mixed-up priorities.There is nothing more important than the youth. In this regard, Pan Trinbago and the Trinidad and Tobago government have failed the youth miserably.
ARE U REALLY SURPRISED
SAME SHITE DIFFERENT EXECUTIVE
We dont love and understand the value of your culture and I am also adding sports on that list.
Well said Mark. You just also write a song about the way the youths who are the future of the Steel Pan are treated.
For the past few years the children Panorams has been seen from the moment of the first note and it has been a joy to watch. I have never missed a children/schools panorama. The station that is supposed to be the CARNIVAL station so far has been more interested in the showing of fetes. It is utterly disgraceful when a TV station that is supposed to be government owned ignores the youth and what is their offering to the culture
We wonder why there is so much crime in this country, but if we ignore the children who are striving to keep themselves good while those who are committing crime get the attention of all even if it is negative, the fact remains that the message sent is being good counts for nothing.
Can the minister of culture and the education tell us if this is the way the Pan in schools programme is going.
This is where the Gypsy should have put the peoples 2 million. Invest in the young people. Invest in the future.
Yesterday I searched every Radio station, every TV station and NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ,What was important to the the programmers? Foreign crap,Stupid Fetes that we don't want to see, re-runs etc. Nothing Positive.
The Youths of the nation doing something POSITIVE what do they get "DISREPECT" I fed up with this crap.
To the head of Pantrinbago SHAME on you and don't tell me anything about is not we fault.
To the minister of culture 2 million for white olk and water , Crap. Coverage of the schools Panorama was More important and added value to culture. SHAME on you.
To the management of CCMG SHAME on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To the minister of Education, the coverage would have cost less that the laptops. SHAME on all of you.
If any of those children were doing anthing negative it would have made all Media. You are saying to the youth that they don't matter and that their positives means nothing to you. SHAME.
