Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Tune played Pantrix - Sung by Steve Sealy
Composed by Avis Bruce
Arranged by Kareem Brown
The introduction was arranged with two parts coming from the melody.The middle pans solo the verse, this comprised of the four (4) pans and the triple guitars. Then the bass also played the chorus and in between parts of this melody was played down to the end.
The judges Jeanette Johnson, Cuthbert Matthews, Lorna Conyette, Joanne Ragbir stated in their score the band should have played a part of the melody in the introduction, (which we did). The band should have played the melody on the middle pans, (which we did). The bass should have played a part of the melody, (which we also did) and in conclusion they said the melody was played to the end (which we did not do).
This clearly showed these people did not know the tune or its pure incompetence on their behalf. A band of seventy odd players have to suffer for thier incompetence. Pan Trinbago should allow persons who have their degree in music to also have PRACTICAL INVOLVEMENT/EXPERIENCE with the steel band, before allowing them to judge.
Because this panel of four seemed to have lost their way.
