Salah; I almost forgot, I have the last three (3) pairs of Double Seconds tuned by Anthony Williams, that was in the "Princess Building" when it was burnt in 1976, in a room that was not touched, I wan't to donate one to "York" or "Mc Masters" of Canada, one to Brooklyn University in New York, and the other to maybe "London"...

Salah; in this sphere, the "PAN" as a whole will be protected and run by "Pan Men" working within the Ministry of Culture, and the Ministry of Industry" as the Instrument is both Cultural, made from an Industrial container, just imagine, a "Pan Man" a Minister, the instrument will arrive on the moon, anywhere a Govermnent Minister goes, a Band should be a part of that itinerary, which will continue promoting the Country AND, the instrument while the tuners maintain the TONAL tuning status...

Happy Earth Arrival Day, Salah. Thank you for your dedication to the steelband movement. Sometimes, we are caught up in celebrity, and our sheroes and heroes who may not be household names, are often the forgotten and ignored. I hope that you are blessed with many more years, and we continue to blessed with your unselfish dedication to pan, and the Arts & Culture of Trinidad & Tobago. Have a GREAT day!

Hi Salah, I was out of the country for a few weeks taking in the Antrigua Panorama and doing a few of my annual off-shore gigs.  I am back now and I am still interested in the Gay Flamingoes CDs.  Please give me a shout at PH (253) 588-5677 anytime in the evenings and we can take it from there.  If I am out leave me a message and a number that I can reach you.  Thanks my brother!

The passing of a Matriarch and steelpan activist

Posted on May 2, 2021 at 1:35pm 0 Comments

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)
