Thousands flock to Brandons Beach for Pan Pun De Sand

Thousands of people have converged on Brandons Beach for the annual Pan Pun De Sand.

The pan lovers have packed onto every inch of the beach for the free event.

Pan groups from Combermere and the Daryl Jordan Secondary School as well as the Aceworx Community Steel Orchestra kept the crowd thoroughly entertained during the early part of the evening.

Pannist Dwight Callendar did a collaboration with Riddim Tribe Dancers and deejays Hutchy and Sizz.

The popular Mosaic Steel Orchestra led by David ZigE Walcott is also set to perform.

      What do you need TNT bands for most steelpans sound the same unless its a real bad set of players and oil drums. You must learn to appreciate and promote your own. Time to revive spouge.

        @Roc Kim, Any pan player, arrangers and tuners would excuse you for that statement, pans are still being made and tuned in Trinidad for bajan bands, ask yourself why.

      Why are we soooo selfish…allways talking about supporting our own and local when it’s a fact that Bajan artiste allways in and out of Trinidad and other countries….ask hyper sounds. We have to embrace one another music and culture in the Caribbean and stop with this selfish behaviour

    When I heard that no pan sides from TnT or even Grenada or Antigua, I did not even wait for Mosiac. Everything seems to be failing under this administration.

    @hcalndre. If you stump your toe you would blame the DLP. And if you are a woman and missed your period you would blame the DLP. Yesterday was simply fantastic. People enjoyed the show. If we appreciate what we have as a people and stop thinking that foreign is necessary and better we would have less of a balance of payment problem. It is our lifestyle that has gotten us in this situation.

      @Saga Boy; if I stump my toe on the DLP premises or some place that is their responsibility, depends on the injury, I probably would bring a law suit and if missing my period and my doctor can prove its the fault of your party I will bring another law suit, how is that? bajans have become so accustom to mediocrity that they are just comfortable with it, especially like the situation that the country is in and you are very happy about it. You know what other people would be mad as hell about, bajans take it with a smile.

    Thank God that we Barbadians can still use and enjoy Brandon’s Beach because I got a heart wrenching shock yesterday afternoon when I went to Miami Beach.There is monstrous construction of a building on the land side and opposite on the beach front there is serious destruction of the natural topography which if allowed can lead to terrible Beach erosion of the Beautiful Miami Beach and beaches along the south coast

    The beaches of Barbados are the cleanest in the region and the least crowded (except Browne’s, Accra, Miami,) because there are so many with long stretches. The guy who cleans Brandon’s does a good voluntary job. He mustn’t overdo its important for the eco system vegetation is left to grow naturally on the beach. NCC told him so and it seems he paid attention..

    Eddy Murray, There’s a crew that is assigned to clean, If you say that they are not doing what they are assigned to do the way you would do it,I would somewhat agree. However that’s that appears to be the norm with the service and work ethic of government workers universally, may I add that we will face a similar situation if and when your government change. I can’t imagine how one individual can clean Brandons

    Where were the TNT Bands.every Crop over these people just cutting back and down sizing Crop over. I hope when Trinidad decided to exclude Bajan entertainers from their carnival, nobody complain. We don’t want no outside acts at crop over but want to run in other people carnivals and then come back home and brag about how much places places and fetes that they perform in.
