T&T - After calling the unfinished structure that was intended to be Pan Trinbago’s headquarters in Trincity an “eyesore which represents the worst of Trinidad and Tobago”, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said: “We have to return to the idea of finding a suitable headquarters for Pan Trinbago.” Rowley was the featured speaker at Invaders Steel Orchestra’s 75th anniversary gala awards and dinner on Tuesday night at the Banquet Hall and Conference Centre at MovieTowne, Port of Spain. “The building is a relic, something we refuse to accept. Maybe it was to be something marvellous that did not get to the right stage, but it is now standing in a canefield,” said Rowley. “Why not find a place in Port of Spain for the headquarters? Some things belong in the city. It draws on its location and the headquarters of the steelpan should be where people are. It is within our ability to find a location; we have to fix that. Maybe we can use the building in Trincity for something else. But we will help. Anything I can do from the office I now hold will be done,” he added.

T&T - Who would have thought that a Japanese steelband would be able to come to Trinidad, compete in an international Panorama - playing a non-Calypso - and still place in the top ten? This is the story of Yoshihiro Harada and his Panorama Steel Orchestra from Tokyo, Japan.
