Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

As we all know , nobody ever sang for and about the steelband as well as the late Grand Master , Lord Kitchener , and his music was certainly appreciated by the steelbands.

The great arranger Jit Samaroo, who seemed to have a special feel for Kitch's tunes , achieved much success with his arrangements of the Grand Masters work , and his arrangement of this tune brought his band , Renegades Steel Orchestra to winners row in 1984.

Kitch's gift was his ability to see and understand the pulse of the steelband movement , and express it in calypso rhyme and rhythm better than just about anyone else.
This tune , simply called "Sweet Pan" is one of his best and his panorama imagery expressed is unparalleled.


From the 1984 album "Simply Wonderful' , here is Lord Kitchener and "Sweet Pan".
