Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
In Trinidad, to be considered a "good dancer" in the dancehalls of 1960's, one had to be skilled at several different genres and tempos of music.
The dance bands of the day were up to the challenge, and it was not unusual for a band to include a fox trot, bolero or cha-cha-cha in a dance set, along with traditional calypso arrangements.
This popular Clarence Curvan Orchestra arrangement challenged the skills of the dancers by featuring several tempo changes.
From the album "Body and Soul", here is the Clarence Curvan orchestra and "A tribute to Carlos"
This was a Ron Berridge arrangement.
