Say ‘wow’ for talented twins

Twin brother and sister Dejean and Deja Cain are young, timid and small in size; but don’t let that fool you. These youngsters already have a talent that can rival that of their adult counterparts. At just 11 years of age, this musical duo from Success Village, Laventille, have mastered the pan, winning hearts and titles across the country. As the children of WITCO Desperadoes frontman Martin Cain and panwoman Patrice Charles, it is not surprising that the siblings followed in their parents’ footsteps and developed an interest in the national instrument at a very early age.

“They started playing at around three years old,” a proud Charles said. “From the time they could hold sticks, they’ve been playing pan.” So intrigued were they by the instrument, that by the time they were four years old, they could already play the national anthem. It takes them just two or three days to learn to play a new song, said their mother. The pair have participated in various competitions and talent shows, taking home the winner’s prize in MovieTowne’s Trinbago Kids Got Talent competition in 2013, with their energetic performance of Will Smith’s “Just The Two Of Us”.

Dejean made it as far as the finals in the Prime Minister’s Best Village competition last year. The twins’ love of pan has taken them around the world, to cities like London and New York, where they played with the New York D’Radoes Steel Orchestra. Locally, they play with the Invaders Youth Steel Orchestra and also played with the Desperadoes for the last two years.
