The old and new world cuddle Pan and technology
CHILGAPSAN is a pervasive folk song from the ‘old world’ Republic of South Korea that depicts the rich ancestry of that country.
The Steelpan, invented in the twentieth century and national musical instrument of the ‘new world’ Republic of Trinidad & Tobago, now plays an adaptation of the score by ace arranger Yohan Popwell from Laventille, Trinidad.
It is available on YouTube and Facebook for auditioning on mobile devices, computers and music players orchestrated by Samsungand Aurender, two of the most technologically-advanced companies in today’s digital world.
The poem ‘Pan’s Lost Identity’, has been narrated by its author Arlette Wiggins (Pan Tastic), a past pupil of St Francois Girl’s College in Trinidad, now resident in Miami, USA with Popwell’s version in the background.
The creation will soon be premiered on Radio Iere, an Internet station recently commissioned in Manchester, UK by Trinidadian Ian Wansley Boodoo, a former student of St. Augustine Senior Secondary School in Trinidad.
It would perfect serendipity if the text were subsequently voiced in Hangul, the official Korean language.
