CIBC First Caribbean gifts Pan Association

The Pan Association has secured sponsorship which will enable them to participate in this year’s Carnival Monday on March 3. The Association was presented with a five thousand dollars cheque ($5000.00) on Thursday, February 13, 2014 from the CIBC First Caribbean International Bank at the Dominica Festivals Committee’s weekly press conference. “CIBC First Caribbean International Bank is happy to be associated with the Real Mas 2014 and proud to be sponsors of the steel pan aspect of the celebrations of our culture,” the Bank’s representative Marie Therese Winston-Charles said.

She explained that the Bank identifies with this year’s theme, Nou Konnet Viv [We know how to live], through the varied and wide assortment of products and services it offers.  “CIBC First Caribbean is truly a fully Caribbean bank operating in seventeen territories from which a person can do business as if he or she were in their home territory, in much the same way that no matter where you hear the steel pan, you know that this is truly Caribbean music,” Winston-Charles added.

She noted that the sponsorship is an indication of the Bank’s confidence in the youth, as well as promoting and ensuring that pan music remains a vibrant aspect of Caribbean culture. “We therefore say to the young people, keep alive the tradition of the great fore-fathers of pan music like Eddie, Wilfred, Allan, Miguel and others gone and still alive so that generations still to come, will always have this pure and sweet Caribbean music to enjoy and revel in”.
