Golden Hands celebrates 21 years with I Am Pan

Golden Hands, a group of young vibrant steelpan musicians based in San Fernando, is celebrating its 21st anniversary with the staging of I Am Pan: The National Steelpan Pageant, at the Sundarlal Bohora Theatre of the Southern Academy for The Performing Arts, on October 5, from 7.30 pm. The event, an initiative of the young executive members of Golden Hands, will expose the innate musical talent of 12 steel pan players, aged between 16 to 25, who also have been provided with developmental tools designed to thrust them forward on their route to self-actualisation. The participants are the successful qualifiers from auditions for the Pageant held at the Naparima Girls’ High School on September 6, in which the criteria was based on three components: solo steelpan performance, impromptu improvisation, and an I Am Pan presentation.

The participating pannists and their instruments of choice are: Latifah Sky DeCoteau, double tenor; Cathy-Ann Joseph, double seconds; Ionnaire Joseph,  tenor; Lershaun De Verteuil, tenor; Jorder Lewis, four cello; Joshua Gloud,  double tenor; Keston George, tenor; Keon James, tenor; Desree Seecharan, tenor; Cheriese Pierre, tenor; Sachelle Thomas, tenor; and Malikha Bishop, tenor.

Franka Hills-Headley, the organisation’s founder and director, in speaking of the event said: “It has been observed that not enough young people are listening to young pannists, so the Pan Pageant was designed to engage young people not only in forming an appreciation for the pan but in their overall human development.”
