Pan Clash 2013

Pan Clash was a great night at the ‘Flyover Portobello’ in Notting Hill, London on Sunday 13th October 2013, with an audience of over 300 people listening to the wonderful sounds of the steelpan. The venue provided an intimate setting with the sounds of many phenomenal jazz steelpan musicians including Samuel Dubois, whom spent this summer touring with MOBO Award Nominee Coutney Pine and features on his latest album ‘House of Legends’.

Pan Clash is a soloist competition for steelpan musician’s aged 13-30. 7 young people took part in the competition soloing to Nora Jones ‘Don’t Know Why’ and free-styling to an original piece of music that was created on the night. Each soloist performs with a professional steelband and in a true X Factor style they each receive comments from 3 judges after their performance; A judge included Debi Gardner the Secretary of the British Association of Steelbands (BAS).

The winning soloist Jenny Gilberg from Newcastle won £500, performed at the VIP Reception at the 18th Anniversary MOBO Awards, 2 tickets to the 18th Anniversary MOBO Awards and a British Association of Steelbands Award. This year 3 muscians from Steel Pan Agency and winner Jenny Gilberg performed at the VIP Reception for people such as So Solid Crew, casts from Gerodie Shore and British Black Gospel MOBO Award Winner Lurine Cato.
