Pan practice with Salah before Pan Alive 2013

"That's what it's about! Very nice!! When people see it in competition it all looks so natural.  But all of the players work so hard to get their parts down and the maestro keeps ear to the overall.  Awesome!"

Greg 'Doubles' Waggoner replied to Pan Times's discussion Would pan be better off if it was a Jamaican invention?
"Haha, yea boy! BTW, I do love a reggae tune as well.  But my heart belongs to Calypso. Love that '67 jam.  The rhythm and melody are killer!"

Lord Kitchener's "No Pan" by Vat 19 Fonclaire Steel orchestra (1980)

Leroy on the Pan

"He stopped using a sledge hammer just after I met him in 1997.  Since then he had used a hand held pneumatic jackhammer with a wooden ball covered with leather.  This provides a super consistent strike.  He would have the barrel…"
