Pan, parang draw crowd to Lopinot

TT – The third edition of A Day in Surrey organised by Supernovas Steel Orchestra drew hundreds of pan and parang patrons to the quiet Lopinot village.

Voces Jovenes and Los Alumnos de San Juan Parang bands entertained the audience with some very special Spanish songs on April 27. Los Alumnos had the audience singing at the top of its voice as the band performed the 1973 Roberta Flack award-winning song Killing Me Softly.

The band also paid tribute to Massy Trinidad All Stars with its version of Scrunter’s Woman on the Bass –a signature song of the steel orchestra from Duke Street, Port of Spain.

After having its fill of parang music the massive audience turned to the national instrument as NGC Couva Joylanders opened that segment with Dancing Mood, and High Mas solicited great applause from the audience.
