De woman tell me she love de invention
She tell me de steel pan, eh eh, de steel pan
A day cannot pass, she must play de pan

The story behind “Passion For Pan”

Lynette “The Priestess” Rocke
Lynette “The Priestess” Rocke

Lynette “The Priestess” Rocke was born in Chaguanas, Trinidad. She has always been a lover and strong supporter of her Trini culture. The steelpan in particular is nearest and dearest to her heart.

Her inspiration to step up her support for the pan in general, and pan people in particular, came from her fascination with the pan music of the great Robert Greenidge, specifically, his CD “From the Heart.” In 2013, her love for this icon’s music was the subject of a conversation she had with gifted calypsonian, Barnett “Preacher” Henry.

 

When she so excitedly proclaimed her passion for the pan, “Preacher” promised to write her a song entitled Passion for Pan; the rest is history.  Ms. Rocke is the executive producer of the song, which has just been released, and confidence is high that it will be a favorite with pan lovers around the world.

Earlier this year, “Priestess” held the gala honoring Mr. Greenidge. Also, just a few months ago she hosted the first annual Pan and Rum Punch event in Atlanta, Georgia featuring pan men Don Clarke and Sheldon Webster.  A major goal of the “Priestess” is to spread the best of what Trinidadian and Tobagonian art and entertainment culture has to offer.
