When Steel Talks


Everybody Listens!!



Patrick Arnold,
  President of Pan Trinbago
- on the 2005 T&T Panorama Season
Trinidad - Patrick Arnold, president of Pan Trinbago, had his customary update for the global pan community via When Steel Talks when he chatted and shared his thoughts on the upcoming competitions for the 2005 Panorama season in Trinidad and Tobago.  Noting that the season was short, he spoke about the new rule which allowed bands  to choose a selection from previous years, once it was not part of their own past panorama repertoire.   Arnold noted that quite a number of bands have opted to go with "classical calypsos" from previous years.  He believed that this would work in favor of the bands and the competition, as pan lovers would be more familiar with the music.  The songs normally written for pan suffered from lack of airplay, according to  Arnold, and as a result, were not always well known.
