D'Panyard by Chuck Gordon | 2024 Soca

Once again, Chuck Gordon has struck a musical note that will resonate well with those interested in songs for the steelpan. Then again, this Soca music release is a little different musically. They call it 'Jiggy Calypso' but it is just more Calypso than Soca. The song is titled D'Panyard and is Chucky's first release for Carnival 2024. 

D'Panyard is a musical gem and is a tribute to the panyard, which is a community space where steelpan players practice and perform. As carnival approaches, panyards across Trinidad and Tobago come alive, with crowds gathering every night to get a taste of the song of choice and music arrangement for the Panorama competition. This song is a tribute to and a celebration of the joy and unity that can be found in the panyard.

Chucky is spitting musical notes and singing about the "sweet strains of stick on steel" that fill the air at the panyard. He also describes the "masses" who follow the drums to the panyard to "support their favorite sides" or just "engage in our most treasured pastime, liming." This is a well-crafted song, and kudos go out to all those responsible for the production and final product, especially Damien "Crazy D" Preston of DP Productions. We love this song!
