  La Pierre Family
Noel; backing many of the calypsonians at Kaiso House on the pan, Earl Junior; trains and manages Afropan in Toronto in his father's absence, Olujimi and Aziza; both panists, Adisa; record engineer. Father Earl Sr. originates from West Trinidad (we probably have to admit here: the West is the best for soloists) and is a former member and arranger for Invaders and Starlift, now a member of Phase II. He has his own school called Cayman School for Pan in Cayman. In Toronto, there's a consensus on who the best players are: Earl La Pierre and his five kids. Their band Afropan is being judged the winning steelband at Toronto's annual Caribana for the 26th time in the last 33 years. Earl La Pierre Sr. is probably the winningest steel band arranger in the world.
 
  Eine aktive Familie im Musikbusiness; Earl Sr., Noel, Earl Jr., Olujimi, Aziza sie alle spielen Pan. Adiza ist Ton-Ingenieur. Vater Earl Sr. kommt ursprünglich aus dem Westen Trinidads und war Member und Arranger für Invaders und Starlift, zur Zeit Member von Phase II. Auf den Cayman Islands hat er eine eigene Musikschule; die Cayman School for Pan. In Toronto spielt die Familie zusammen im Afropan Orchestra, und es besteht kein Zweifel, La Pierre und seine 5 Kids sind die Besten Panists Toronto's. Afropan wurde von 33 Toronto Caribana Competitions bereits 26 mal Sieger. Earl La Pierre Sr. ist somit mit ziemlicher Sicherheit der Steelband Arrangeur, der weltweit die meisten Panorama Siege vorzeigen kann.

  Lewis, Lennox 'Darkie'
  Darkie was one of Trinidad's top tuners and again Trinidad has failed them. He died on Monday, 9th October 2006 night and his body was only discovered on Wednesday. He was cremated at the Belgrove Crematorium at Tacarigua in east Trinidad. The issue with Darkie is really sad, there were 27 persons present to send him off for his last journey, and up to now neither an official death notice nor a word in the media. He made Pamberi's first set of chromed instruments in 1980, also was the tuner for Casablanca when they won the Steelband Festival in 1982 performing "The 1812 Overture". The band went on to perform the same piece with the Boston Pops Orchestra in the USA that same year, performing on Darkie pans. He was a great tuner. His pans were strong, with beautiful tone.
   
  Darkie wird als Top Tuner in Trinidad aufgezählt. Er verstarb am 9. Oktober 2006 und wurde erst am folgenden Mittwoch gefunden. Bis jetzt ist weder eine Todesanzeige noch irgendein Artikel über ihn zu lesen. Man wundert sich was wir Panists ohne Pan Tuners denn spielen würden...
   
  Liming
  Liming is hanging out. It is a local term named after the lime fruit that hangs down from the tree.
   
  Liming ist herumhängen, sich mit Freunden treffen und tratschen. Das Wort kommt von der Zitrusfrucht Lime, die hängend an Bäumen wächst.
   
  Lord Harris Square
  Lord Harris Square is on Abercrombie street in Port of Spain. It was named for Lord Harris the British governor during the British colonial period.
   
  Der Lord Harris Square wurde nach einem Britischen Gouverneur benannt und ist in Port of Spain.
   
  Lovelace, Earl
  Brilliant writer and author of many books. One who describes the steelband movement at its best is The Dragon Can't Dance.
   
  Schriftsteller in Trinidad, hat das Buch "The Dragon Can't Dance" geschrieben, welches wunderschön die Entstehungsgeschichte der Steelbands beschreibt. Das Buch ist auch in Deutsch übersetzt worden (Drachentanz).
