The mural above is in memory of the late and great Steel Band arranger Mr. Jit Samaroo. It is time for the Panorama finals but we must not forget our fallen heroes. Let's celebrate the man and his music... let's never forget!

The Order of Appearance:
This is the order of appearance for the Panorama Finals 2016. This stage of the competition will feature the Large and Medium Conventional bands. This competition is for bragging rights until King Carnival returns in 2017! This is a premiere event; make sure that you take in all of the Large Bands performances. The medium bands are important and the music will be sweet but everyone heads to the Savannah to witness the larger bands compete for the title of best Steel band for Carnival 2016!

The finals is scheduled to take place at the Queen's Park Savannah (Grand Stand) on Saturday February 6, 2016.

If you would like to listen to the songs the bands will be playing for their final appearance for Carnival 2016 then go to When Steel Talks to play the songs. When Steel Talks gets the songs before anyone. Sometimes they are the only place to hear the songs.
