Crying For Carnival-mainly for PAN!

Posted on February 21, 2009 at 12:39pm 0 Comments

So...I'm stuck here in this COLD country. Some of my band members have gone to Trinidad for the Carnival, more so for the Panorama (The Greatest Steelpan Show On Earth). I hope to ease my sadness by catching the finals tonight on the web. [side bar:drupee, play a sweet chord for me!!!]

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but missing Panorama WILL kill me!

I don't celebrate at this age. Just glad to be here. Saw your Mom at the TnT Independence celebrations at Queen's Park.

Dear Suzette,
Thanks for your support. So far, we have jams lined up in Detroit, Buffalo and Cleveland. Where are you located?
All the best,
Cathy George

Nope, I was up here for Carnival. I haven't played in a few years now as well.

Hi Suzette,
The Steelpan is something quite new in this part of South America. It's something I have started to promote since 2004. So far, there is a live band in Campinas (São Paulo) and in Volta Redonda (Rio de Janeiro). I am also a steelpan soloist, soloing with symphony orchestras (in terms of the classical) and with other popular music bands.
What is the trend up in Canada

São Paulo,

Yes - I'm a soloist, I don't normally play in a band as there isn't one in my local area. I sometimes play in Panorama in London, and have played twice in Trinidad with Starlift with Ray Holman arranging. I wish I was there today!

I'm doing fine, keeping busy with a variety of things these days. How are things with you? I hope things are going well also.
