The Panorama is the the largest steel pan competition held annually in the United States, which is originally from Trinidad and Tobago. Winning is a very honorable, meaningful achievement. In particular, this film exhibits a story about Crossfire, a band that struggles to win this competition despite their young age, various obstacles, difficult lives, and previous failures to win first place. Viewers will feel the charm of the young panists and their immense dedication to their cultural roots and homeland.<br /> <br /> Story:<br /> <br /> Crossfire, a steel pan band that has been based in Brooklyn for more than 15 years, consists of members that are mostly teenagers and young adults. In the summer of 2013 they participated in the Panorama Competition, the largest steel pan contest since 1971. Crossfire has had numerous failed attempts placing first at the Panorama Competition. ADLIB, which is another talented steel pan band, defeated Crossfire in 2012. Crossfire got 2nd place next to ADLIB. check out the website <a href="http://tommystart.wix.com/thesparkles" target="_blank&quot;">http://tommystart.wix.com/thesparkles</a> THE STEEL PAN (2010)-DOCUMENTARY tag:whensteeltalks.ning.com,2013-04-04:2534462:Video:343248 2013-04-04T22:57:30.643Z Pan Times https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/profile/PanTimes <a href="https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/video/the-steel-pan-2010-documentary"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2971017929?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The steel Pan a Ne Kunda Nlaba documentary film about this only acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century and originated on the island of Trinidad in the 1930's.<br></br> In this historical and educational documentary film, Ne Kunda Nlaba shows the history, the development, the construction and also all the activities involved with this spiritual instrument called… <a href="https://whensteeltalks.ning.com/video/the-steel-pan-2010-documentary"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2971017929?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />The steel Pan a Ne Kunda Nlaba documentary film about this only acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century and originated on the island of Trinidad in the 1930's.<br /> In this historical and educational documentary film, Ne Kunda Nlaba shows the history, the development, the construction and also all the activities involved with this spiritual instrument called Steel Pan.
