Pan in the 21st century continues with more scintillating performances. Today, we present Supernova's Steel Orchestra playing "Grenade" by Bruno Mars. The arrangement was done by Amrit Samaroo, who is also the band leader. 

It appears that Bruno Mars and Silk Sonic selections are the 'pick of the crop' for most of the bands in the preliminary round of competition. We have also included Bruno Mars' performance for those who don't know the song (where have you been lately?).

Supernovas Steel Orchestra is a steel band from Surrey Village, Lopinot, Trinidad and Tobago. It was founded in 2010 by members of the community, including Amrit Samaroo, son of pan legend Jit Samaroo. The band has quickly become one of the most successful steel bands in Trinidad and Tobago, winning the Small Band Category of the National Panorama in 2014.

Supernovas is a vibrant and dynamic steel band that is making a positive impact on the community and the world of music. The band is a testament to the power of music to bring people together and inspire creativity.
