NEVIN Roach, CEO and conceptualiser of PanoGrama, is still basking in the success of the steel pan event's second annual staging which saw an encouraging amount of entrants.
“We implemented auditions this year, in anticipation of increased interest. A total of 45 auditions were received from across 13 countries: Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Canada, England, France, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, T&T (Trinidad and Tobago), US Virgin Islands, and the USA. This was cut down and only 30 pannists featured in the prelims,” said Nevin, who hails from the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
