A man passed away that some may know from back in the days of the '' Penthouse '' down town

Port Of spain , TnT. his name is CHOY AMING ...

He took alot of guy to the island of Bermuda and gave them the opportunity to see what life was like outside of

Trinidad and Tobago, including myself. he brought the cultures of his home land to the people of the island

along with his brother ( mas maker ) Neville Aming and family. and for years our music and costumes paraded on the streets of Bermuda every May 24th. ( Bermuda Day ).

I remember Choy Aming. He was one of Trinidad's top bandleaders and musicians in the 1950s and early 1960s.
R.I.P , Choy Aming.
