Dama Antonona by The Chase Manhattan Savoys Steel Orchestra.(Steelband Festival 1966)

The T&T Steelband Music Festival of 1966 was a landmark in the development in the steelband art-form , and a significant milestone in the development of the steelpan as a versatile musical instrument .

All of the finalists at that festival performed at their highest level , and another fine performance was that of the Chase Manhattan Savoys Steel Orchestra.

Here they are as they performed "Dama Antonona" , as composed by Venezuelan composer Francisco de Paula Aguirre (October 20, 1875 – 1939) and arranged by Martin Albino , of the highly accomplished musical Albino family.

Thanks for posting this Glenroy. I was just wondering where this festival took place. Was this the festival that was held at the Chaguaramas Seaplane Hanger? I remember attending a sell-out steelpan festival there as a child with friends in our "home clothes" because we lived nearby in Carenage, the nearest village to the Chaguaramas American base.
