Caution: Very Sweet Pan Music, Very Addictive



 "Sesame Flyers"
Female Voices in Steel

Pan has been a part of my life since I was 7 years old.  At the age of 15 I have learned to grasp the concept of playing a tenor pan and I even began to love it.  From the first day I went behind the tenor I knew it was the instrument for me.  I have become more experienced with it and have also learned to have patience to become a perfectionist.  I believe the tenor is the most challenging instrument.  Sesame Flyers has inspired me to keep playing and to also love the Caribbean heritage from where pan evolved.  In Sesame Flyers I am taught to keep all personal differences aside and to concentrate on music only while at practice.  I love being with my band mates, we consider ourselves to be a family where we are all one band that makes one sound.  I love pan I will keep playing it.

As a child growing up in Trinidad, I remember hearing the grannies in the area saying the pan yard is no place for a young lady.  And now after being in Sesame Flyers Steel Orchestra it shows how pan around the world has changed.  I have been in the band for over 15 years and everyday you see or hear something new where a female is getting praised.  “Woman is Boss” and the “Woman on the Base” does not say anything about a man putting her there.  She went there on her own.  Pan has come a long way and females have the ability to do what men can do and even better.  Panorama 2K5 will prove this for Sesame Flyers.
