Junior Panorama Results 2017

The Junior Panorama Competition took place on Sunday February 19th. 2017 at the Queens Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. It was a bitter sweet day for the Youth Pan Movement on their big day. The joy of competition was evident but that joy they experienced did not translate to the International audience. Unfortunately there was no International broadcast. In other words the competition was not on radio or any Internet feed. 

It is our hope that this will not happen again. Someone has to account for this travesty. It is a shame that we will have to wait another year to have the opportunity to experience this event again. At that time one would hope that better decisions are made and the Internet feed with exist. 

Now we have some of the results for the three categories of competition today. We will update the post with all the results as they become available.

Panorama Results | Medium and Large Bands Trinidad & Tobago 2017

These are the results for the Medium and Large Conventional Steel Bands | Trinidad and Tobago Panorama Competition 2017

It was 'Pan in Yuh Pwefen' for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2017 at the Queen's Park Savannah Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. Twenty one Medium and Large Conventional bands performed before the judges and their adoring fans for the privilege to be called Champion Panorama Band for Carnival 2017. 

It was a warm night with high concentrations of adrenalin coursing through the veins of the pan-players. Band after band with pans being massaged to bring out sweet harmonious sounds to bewitch the listening audience. After all was said and done, pans pushed on and off the stage one mighty band celebrated for each category. We were there, if only in spirit, to witness it all. We did not have a physical presence but because of WACK Radio 90.1 FM's Television coverage we felt like 'we were there"!

We picked a few performances to leave some notes on here. Invaders was impressive tonight. The energy was impressive and the musical arrangement never fell off.. it was a performance to remember! Indeed, Invaders 'hold dem and wuk dem' for sure.. wow! Well if you think that Invaders was awesome then the performance by Renegades was off the charts! What an amazing performance... phew! Then came All Stars, they brought some serious energy to their performance. The crowd went crazy and the realization was that they could do no wrong! Exodus closed the show with a very credible performance playing 'Good Morning' at 3:00 am. Morning is here and we await the results. The judges had the final say...

Indeed the judges had the final say and maybe it was  the energy of All Stars that wowed the judges. Having said that, we at Sokah2Soca have concluded that our winner for Panorama 2017 was Renegades... they were different and it is the one performance that caused us to say... Wow!

Calypso Monarch Results for Trinidad and Tobago 2017

Chalkdust Wins Number Nine | Calypso Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago 2017

What happened at the Queen's Park Savannah last night?  Kaisorama was exciting and fun but the Calypso Monarch Competition bordered on boring last night. Who hit the mark?  Well I can't say because I was a little numb watching the show. It came to an end and I was wondering who won? 

From the onset I had two contestants that I thought could win it based on the performances at the semi finals aka Kaisorama. I picked Terri Lyons and Dr. Hollis Liverpool aka Chalkdust. They both performed well but so did many of the singers. Something was missing from the show but that did not take away from the feeling of joy the winner experienced.

Waiting on the results was like a visit to the dentist to have a tooth removed. It could have been done better but the tribute to the Icons did not move along smoothly. The performances by the guest singers lacked conviction and it felt like they wanted to get off the stage quickly. Bunji Garlin's voice needs rest, Fay Ann was good but someone forgot to turn on the volume to Super Blue's microphone! Kreesha Turner, Ormardath Maraj, Raymond Ramnarine and Ravi B tried to add some life to the event but the stands appeared to be empty already.

Then came the results... Dr. Hollis Liverpool now stands alone with the most wins as Calypso Monarch for Trinidad and Tobago. Chalkdust won title number nine breaking a tie with the Mighty Sparrow. Sokah2Soca extends congratulations to Dr. Liverpool on his victory tonight. 

The New Calypso Monarch For Trinidad and Tobago 2017 is Dr. Hollis Liverpool aka Chalkdust!

Road March Competition Results Trinidad and Tobago 2017

The results are in and it was a massacre for the 2017 Road March Competition in Trinidad and Tobago. The Monk was severely beaten by the Rejects. Full Extreme by the Ultimate Rejects bludgeoned the competition. 

I am sure that not even Machel Montano expected this... do you remember the video of him talking about the Road Macrch locked (Beat It). I said from the beginning that "Your Time Now" was the better song and that he should have promoted it instead of looking to release a 'super track'. However, everyone expected a second song and that they got but it was to no avail. 

This was an epic trashing... the results speak volumes for what the people wanted. Full Extreme destroyed Machel Montano... the Monk has to retreat and recuperate!

Here are the Official Results:
  1. Full Extreme - 556 plays
  2. Your Time Now - 72 plays
  3. Beat It - 18 plays
Watch the video, especially his facial expression, as he announced that he was working on his Road March Song to win the Road March Competition. How did that work out?
