Good Morning, Panorama!
A 2016 Crop Over soca hit by Barbados’ own, Peter Ram, will feature prominently in the Pan Trinbago/NLCB National Panorama Semifinals in Trinidad and Tobago this weekend.
Good Morning was chosen by six groups including defending champions Desperadoes. The other bands playing the popular tune are Republic Bank Exodus, BPTT Renegades, Skiffle, MHTL Starlift and Petrotrin Katzenjammers.
Songwriter and co-producer, Jovan James, is the musical heavyweight behind the wildly-popular song brought to life by Ram. The soca hit has had the entire region rocking since Crop Over last July-August.
With the track’s appeal continually expanding, James and Ram unleashed the ‘Trinbago’ version as it shows no sign of slowing down.
Ram is currently in Trinidad and Tobago where he recently performed the same song in the International Soca Monarch semifinals. He appeared at number 16.
The other Bajans who performed in the competition were Marvay, Marzville, Biggie Irie, and King Bubba.
