Pan, sweet pan

Christine Mueller, head of administration at the Embassy of the Republic of Germany, in Port of Spain and her husband John Tsavdaridis were overjoyed about their trip to Grande Riviere, Toco, for the first edition of Pan in the Countryside last Saturday.
The husband and wife team thanked Pan Trinbago’s president Keith Diaz for arranging transport to and from the venue. Tsavdaridis who is Australian was surprised that a police escort led the maxi taxis from Arima to Grande Riviere.

They couldn’t stop talking about the breathtaking scenes during the three-hour drive nor could they express their feelings after tasting the local cuisine at Kay and Jenny’s Country Kitchen at Arthur’s Bar in Rampanalgas. But the surprise of the day came when they saw and heard the music of our national instrument the pan. They were simply ‘blown away’ by what transpired. Mueller said they travel around the world and try to take in the cultures of the people in the lands they visit.

Pan in the Countryside featured steel orchestras from the Eastern Region of Pan Trinbago including the reigning Small Band champions Supernovas, Southern Marines Steelband Foundation from the South Central region and Carib Woodbrook Playboyz and City Sun Valley from the Northern Region. The event started just on 4 p.m. with Cordettes Steel Orchestra which kicked off with “Breezing” then moved into “Don’t Stop Till you get enough”, “Unconditional Love”, “Brazil”, “Jamming’”and “Bailamos”.
