Pelham Goddard at WST Headquarters
- Veteran songwriter and steelband music arranger
Pelham Goddard once again has
set the pace, leading by example and has gone one step further. He has
made publicly available - even prior to Trinidad & Tobago's 2010 panorama
competition - the lead sheet of his composition “Pan in de Mas” for bands
interested in learning the music.
Cherishing an association of many years with
the steelpan, the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago - as arranger
and musical director - Goddard has won several steelband competitions with music
powerhouse, the world-renowned
Exodus Steel Orchestra, based in St. Augustine,
east Trinidad, and headed by manager
Exodus will be going to
Panorama 2010 playing
“Pan in de Mas,” of course arranged by Pelham Goddard. Also composed by
Goddard, lyrics for the track were penned by the legendary Caribbean artist
David Rudder, who also vocalizes the song.
With “Pan in de Mas” being just one track on the growing
list of 2010 songs for the annual Trinidad and Tobago National Steelband Panorama
competition, Goddard also took time out for an
When Steel Talks.
