My name is Jamel Cadette, a sixteen-year-old who has a passion for pan and on my way to becoming a very good musician.  I began to play the steelpan at the age of 11 in the year 2013, where I was thought by my uncle, Esley Cadette.

A few years have gone by and I started to do my own thing... one day I realised that I have a good musical ear and I took advantage of it, and started to arrange songs at home in my bedroom.

I began the birdsong after school program where I started to learn to read music. The same year I started to get a lot better at arranging and I wanted to arrange for a Panorama band, so there is where I found Bon Air Rhythm Rockers; and at fifteen, Im the youngest arranger in the 2018 Panorama.  I didn't make it to semis or finals in 2018 but my first attempt was good, placing 40th out of 43 bands in the small conventional steel orchestra category.

I will keep on striving to do my best!
