Trinidad Steelband Panorama 2005 Special

Date: 2.13.05

Sforzata Steel Orchestra led by upcoming arranger Yohan Powell won the title in the medium band category for the 2005 Trinidad and Tobago Panorama. 
 

When Steel Talks managed to catch up with Yohan Popwell, arranger for Sforzata in an exclusive post panorama interview.   He was tired from the hectic pan season - as both arranger for Sforzata, and key member and player in Trinidad All Stars.   But Popwell was still on the go - he had a performance the next day - and he was still on the job. 

Even while he was being interviewed, Popwell could be heard responding to shouts of "congratulations" from well-wishers.  Popwell represents one of Trinidad and Tobago's rising young stars, coming into prominence when he won the 2004 New York Panorama with Sonatas Steel Orchestra.  

Responding to the popularity of Sforzata since they topped the semi-final phase of the competition, Popwell personally believed that it was in Sforzata's to remain in the medium band category rather than moving to the large band category.   He thought that two years in at that level was a good outlook for the development of the band.  

The number of players for bands in the medium category was from seventy-five to ninety, and Popwell said that their numbers grew to the maximum as musicians from other bands that did not make the finals joined the ranks of Sforzata.
