Ian Jones replied to Pan Times's discussion A Message from Exodus Steel Orchestra
"Exodus, let's not get carried away here.  I fully agree that Pan Trinbago's poor handling of the matter left the learned judge no choice.  However, if we take a dispassionate look at the situation, we will see that last Sunday a…"

Ian Jones replied to Pan Times's discussion Pan Trinbago says no to Exodus song change
"It would be interesting to see the grounds on which Pan Trinbago came to this judgment. Exodus is incurring all the risks viz. 2 weeks instead of 2 months to complete, learn and perform a new arrangement; facing the judges with the arrangement for…"

Selwyn "Mello Sello" Gomes

Sello Gomes, the first arranger of Silver Stars Steelband passed away suddenly last night in Toronto at the age of 84.  Sello was a pan pioneer both in Trinidad as one of the 8 original members of Silver Stars in 1951,and in Canada in 1970 when he introduced pan to secondary schools (Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute) where he was a Business teacher.  Sello was an active pan musician on the Toronto scene from 1958 to 2015, and he will be sorely missed.  Sincere condolences to his family!See More
