The "National Single Pan Steelpan-Finals" is the first Steelband Panorama competition for Carnival 2024. This competition takes place in November and December of 2023. The competition took place at the Grand Stand, Queens Park Savannah, in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. The venue is well known as the "Big Yard" for most major steel band competitions.
This year showcased the individual and collective talents of so many non-musically trained citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. Amazingly, our creativity flourishes with astounding musical arrangements and talented instrumentalists. Just think about making music and the use of the steel pan as a part of our school syllabus. We would move ahead of the world just because our people intuitively learned to play the instrument. We no longer "beat pan"; instead, we play a musical instrument that is recognized worldwide and was created by our own people. Oh, the possibilities!
Today we present the results of the recently concluded competition with the winning performance courtesy of PanTrinbago's Facebook Page. We will update this post with the actual performances as they become available. Please come back to this post for audio or YouTube video recordings.
Here are the results of Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival 2024 National Panorama 2024 Single Pan Finals Competition. Twenty bands were competing to be crowned champion. For this competition, the first-place winner, Chord Masters, playing Doctor Cassandra by Gabby, romped home to win it all. Congratulations from Sokah2Soca!
