Verse 1

Last year Phase 2 was outstanding
They had the savannah jumping
They share plenty licks, with their sticks.
Despers say they had enough
This year they’ll be - back on top
When they hit the stage - Is pan in ah rage
They’ll be turning ah new page.
All Stars say that they -
Going to even the score, Panorama night
In the Grand Stand is war.
Dem bands - from Tobago say -
Is their time to shine
Panorama - it will be - pan sublime.
Panists coming out to shine.


Pan in yuh Pwefen -
This year is - Pan in yuh Pwefen
When bands start to jam -
Will be thunder in the stands
Pan in yuh Pwefen -
You getting - Pan in yuh Pwefen
They will have to call the fire brigade
All who want to make the grade
Pan in yuh Pwefen -
This year is Pan in yuh Pwefen
Music sweet,
You bound to jump off yuh seat
And sing along - with the tunes they play
When you see panist jam and breakaway -
You’ll understand
It is pan - is that sweet thing called pan

Verse 2

Ah hear composers saying
This year will be real challenging.
They putting the best - to the test.
They bringing sweet melodies -
With intricate harmonies
Is the kinda tunes Panist like to play
To make pans Ramajay.
So all arrangers - better start making plans
To put down the best -
Arrangements for their bands
This year - the savannah will -
Be a battle-ground
I wonder who
Will be taking home the crown
Come and witness the showdown.



Verse 3

This year for Pano-rama
Come and see the real drama
Make sure and be there - to compare
When pans play their harmony
Sweet calypso melody
You will hear steelband music at its best
Something you will not forget.
The whole savannah -
Will be jumping with glee
So proud to be part - of steelband rivalry.
Dat’s why - it’s important -
To make your reservation
To witness – who’ll be national champions
Bacchanal in the North Stand

Edwin Ayoung: “Crazy” - born Edwin Ayoung in  1944, on Maraval Road in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad of a Venezuelan mother and Trinidadian father of Chinese descent, was - in his youth - as skilled and competitive in his country’s national pastime of cricket, as he has been now for years as a world-travelled musician, performing artist and composer.

Though dubbed The “Loveable Lunatic of Soca,” Ayoung has time and again not been given his due in his native land, yet remains one of the most commercially successful artists on the international soca scene. An experimentalist, he pioneered the unique musical genre known as Parang Soca and played a leading role in promoting Chutney Soca. Crazy would go on to sing several monster smashes in parang soca, including Muchacha and Homemade Wine.

A brilliant double-entendre artiste at its best - Edwin Ayoung has delighted in pushing the envelope in his humorous and witty manner.  With songs like Paul, Nani Wine and Suck Meh Soucouyant to name but three, this illustrious performer remains a staple in the music world.

He’s been ranked in the top three for Trinidad & Tobago’s annual national calypso monarch competition - his best showing being at position two with Dustbin Cover.  He captured the prestigious Road March title (the ‘tune for the road’ during Carnival Monday and Tuesday) in 1985 with Suck Meh, Soucouyant.

This hard-working hit-making machine and best-selling soca artiste over the years has stayed in the public consciousness, serving up such ditties and classics as Drive It, Dis Is How and Cold Sweat.

On the pan scene, Crazy sang one of the most popular ‘pan tunes’ in years; written by Amrit Samaroo, 2007’s Band From Space captured the imagination of the steelband music community worldwide, becoming the panorama selection for some, and part of the overall repertoire for others.

Edwin Ayoung makes his home in California on the USA’s west coast, with frequent trips back to the land of his birth.

For the 2014 steelband Panorama season, “Crazy” has already lent his vocals to Thoroughbred of Pan” released back in August of this year, and now returns with another, the track featured here, Pan In Yuh Pwefen.

Edited by C. Phillips

Winston “'Skippy”' Maingot has won Calypso titles in Montreal, and Toronto, Canada.  His compositions have been performed by artists such as Crazy, Macomere Fifi and Ronnie McIntosh as well as Connector, to name a few.  Maingot was also a member of the Expo ‘67 Steelband.
