Congratulations to the Silver Stars steel band that won the large band category of the most important steel pan competition Panorama. They ruled the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain, Trinidad last night with Anselm Douglas’ tune Battle Zone. This tune was originally released on the 2010 Calypso Compilation – Something Special by Major & minor and is digitally distributed by Faluma to all major download stores.
It is the second year in a row that a tune produced by Alvin Daniell of Major & minor won the Panorama.
In the medium band category two other tunes from the very same compilation scored second and third: Destra’s “Surrender” performed by the Courts Sounds Specialists of Laventille and Eunice Peter’s “Lightning Strikes Twice” performed by the Katzenjammers.
Obviously the 2010 Calypso Compilation is truely “Something Special” and a must-have for all lovers of steel pan and calypso.
