This is great news. It is important for us to know our History and to keep "Pan Alive".I always maintain that Pan is a communnal instument, and it is now an instument all over the globe. Hats off to AfroPan. Keep on keeping on, our children need this. God Bless! Once more, Congratulations!

As an arranger and composer it's such a joy to see steelband music---this music out of the bowels of the Trinbagonian culture---being performed by people of so many different ethnic backgrounds, people of different age groups. It's pretty astounding and as a Trinidadian I feel a sense of pride whenever I hear it or see it performed, for this is unique.
