Clive Telemaque has been playing Pan since 1972 when he was still a small boy. He started to play with Renegades Steel Orchestra on Charlotte Street, Port-of-Spain, and then went onto Trinidad All Stars in 1973.

Telemaque has travelled around the world a few times, visiting places like India, Africa, Japan, England, North Korea, the USA and many others. He has also performed in local competitions in his homeland of Trinidad, at shows, wedding parties and other occasions.

He is a past arranger for St. Margaret Boys Anglican School, winning three Junior Panorama competitions and also taking the Gonzales Sheikers to nine Panorama finals in eleven years. Telemaque composed a Calypso some years ago which was sung by Protector, who in turn went on to capture the Young Kings crown performing the selection. From 2000 Telemaque began working with the Carnival Cruise Line, and performed as a premier soloist on the vessels through 2010.

In 2012, in his first attempt at a “Pan song,” Telemaque composed Play Yourself which was the winning tune at the Panorama Finals 2012 Large Band category, performed by his band Trinidad All Stars.

The 2013, 2014 and 2015 seasons saw Trinidad All Stars opt again for his talents with Bounce and Drive, Excitement and Unquestionable when they went with those tracks as their tunes of choice. On the circuit once more for the 2016 Panorama season, Leave We Alone is one of Telemaque’s music works, and the tune of choice for All Stars.
