Grenada's Angel Harps Steel Orchestra 1995

Host...Harold Pysadee... NCB Angel Harps Steel Orchestra... Panorama @ Queens Park, St. George's Grenada West Indies...


A phenomenal 1995 panorama performance by Angel Harps was so captivating that at the end of the competition, a single point separated them from the champions that year, New Dimension Steel Orchestra. But as far as the people were concerned, they had made their mark - and Angel Harps were the 'People's Choice.' The tune performed, and arranged by veteran musician James Clarkson - 'Classic to Calypso' - was, according to Angel Harps' David Seales, "one of the Panorama tunes that got international coverage." "As someone who was at Panorama that night said 'Man I went by the bar for ah beer when Angel Harps start to play; when I come back ah see another Band on stage - what happen?'" "That person missed the performance of 'Classic to Calypso' - the removing of the White shirt to reveal the Red Tshirt below," said Seales.
