I am writing you this letter in appreciation of the hard work and dedication that the people of Trinidad and Tobago have put into the development of our national instrument. I have mentioned to Mr. Lashley our former consul General in Toronto about organizing an all steelband event on August 31 2012 to commemorate our 50th year of independence by performing the National Anthem of Trinidad and Tobago as a tribute to our Cultural Heritage and our gift to the World. The Steelpan is indigenous to Trididad but expanding everywhere....All steelpan Players Must perfrom the National Anthem on August 31 20 at 12:00 PM post your Videos on facebook.

The steel Pan must be officially declared as one of the National Emblems and our National Instrument by an ACT OF PARLIMENT by the government of T&T, anything else is only lip service. The Pan fraternity must see the true picture and act now to preserve our unique contribution to the World of Music.

The Steel Pan Corp Must be there!
Qualfied Steelpan Players should be hired as members of T&T Diplomatic Corp and station in Consulates around the World representing our National Instrument.

I am writing you this letter in appreciation of the hard work and dedication that the people of Trinidad and Tobago have put into the development of our national instrument.

The Steelpan Instrument is just as symbolic to the World, as the Statue of Liberty in terms of freedom of expression. I propose this "Pan-mageddon" be held at 4:00 PM T&T time. All Steelbands should take to the streets, parks, community centers, savannahs in their districts creating the largest amount of Steelbands playing the official version of the Anthem at the same time. Its a little more than three (3) years from now, I am forwarding this message to you in your capacity to advise on making it work.

I am appealing to the International Steel Pan loving community to help create a greater awareness and attitude for our belove instrument.
