Lopinot Pan in The Countryside Promises to be Music, Food and Fun

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - This edition of Pan in De Countryside promises to surpass all.

For starters, it will be held in the small picturesque rural village of Lopinot, Trinidad - home of distinguished steelpan musicians, arrangers and composers Dr. Jit Samaroo, Amrit Samaroo and the Samaroo Jets.

In addition to “De Countryside Concert,” hosts Supernovas have included a culinary competition “Panists Can Cook Too” among the various regions. Members from the Northern, South/Central, Eastern, Tobago and Friends of Pan Trinbago will trade their musical skills for their cooking abilities in what promises to be an exciting twist to the already entertaining event.  Cooks will compete in four categories.

All this takes place on Saturday 27th June 2015 at the Lopinot Settlement and Recreation Grounds.

The cook-off commences at 12 noon. At stake will be cash prizes totaling twelve thousand dollars (TT $12,000.) sponsored by Carib. Patrons will be able to taste the dishes prepared by the contestants.

From 4:00 p.m. the action shifts to the steelband concert. Selected steel orchestras are Exodus, Sound Specialists of Laventille, Bon Air Rhythm Rockers, Arima Golden Symphony, Nostrand Steel Orchestra and hosts Supernovas.  Attendees are invited to walk with their chairs.

For added convenience, transportation is arranged at TT $150.00 return. Maxis leave Pan Trinbago’s Head Office Car Park, Park Street, Port-of-Spain at 2:00 p.m. Further information contact Pan Trinbago at 1 (868) 625-3556.
