De Fosto leading the way with selections for Panorama

This year has seen a proliferation of pan songs like no other. Already there are well over 50 songs and the list keeps growing every day.  Every year new composers and singers come to the fore just to be in the game but with all these songs only a handful are played at the annual National Panorama competition.

The composer who leads the pack this year is one who has been at the forefront in pan songs, The Original De Fosto Himself. He has two songs “In De Minor” and “Pan in the Atmosphere”. Six steel orchestras will be going to the savannah with “In De Minor” including bp Renegades with Duvone Stewart as arranger; Arima Angel Harps with Shelton C Besson; Supernovas with Amrit Samaroo as arranger, and Andre White with Tamana Pioneers.

La Brea Nightingales (BJ Marcelle) and Curepe Scherzando (Yohan Popwell) will play “Pan in the Atmosphere”. Following De Fosto are reigning Road March Champion and Soca Monarch SuperBlue, Brian “Bean” Griffith and Clive Telemaque. Their songs are being played by three steel orchestras. The last time arranger Robbie Greenidge won a Panorama (1994) he teamed up with Superblue (Fire Coming Down). He is going with the high priest of soca this year as he does “Spankin—A Tribute” with Witco Desperadoes. His nemesis Len Boogsie Sharpe is arranging the same song for Katzenjammers from Tobago and the third band playing “Spankin” is T&T Music Stars.
