Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

A few days before the 2009 New York steelband music panorama, Basement Recordings captured Sonatas Steel Orchestra in their panyard in Brooklyn, New York. Sonatas would go on to win the 2009 championship a few days later. This is a 3-minute sample of the ten-minute slow version of their panorama selection 'Bandoleros.'

This year, there will be two Pan In New York CDs released. Pan In New York 2009 - the CD, will feature the orchestras performing at tempo.

The other CD, "Pan In New York - the Cooldown Version" will feature the bands playing at reduced tempo (including the slow version you are listening to now from Sonatas), an aspect which has always been in demand over the years, so that the arrangements and execution may truly be savored at a slower pace performance.

The up-tempo release, Pan in New York 2009, will feature the musical skills of Despers USA, Sonatas, CASYM and Pantonic (all four have been panorama champions in their own right over the years), in addition to CrossFire, D'Radoes and Sesame Flyers.

These two CD releases are of course, a continuation of the Pan-4-Life series from Basement Recordings.

You will be able to pre-order these CDs within the next 48 hours from www.Pantonic.com/cds

i am proud that my son is a part of the wondeful young people who play for sonatas. It brings back culture and keeps him very occupied and off the streets.
