What the Bands are playing for Panorama 2007

Any connoisseur of pan will tell you that no serious conversation about great steelband music and its history can take place without the name Antigua being front and center in the mix.  Indeed Antigua is the land of many firsts as it relates to the Steelpan Instrument - the first Steelband Association and the first steelband recordings, among others. 

This year Antigua marks fifty years of carnival of the bands (1957 - 2007).  As part of this celebration the steelbands have been given the option of playing any Antiguan Calypso or Soca song produced within the last 50 years.  Naturally the likes of Short Shirt, Swallow and Burning Flames who have ruled the roost many times with their superior ditties - are the preferred choices of the orchestras when given this type of latitude.

Antigua's National Panorama will be held Thursday, August 2nd, 2007 at Antigua's Recreation Grounds (Carnival City).  The following is a listing of what the steel orchestras are playing for this year's competition, which features veteran arrangers in the ring with bands whose solid bases as phenomenal music entities, will once again be in competition mode.
