    Steel Pan music to replace dancehall! says Trini PM

    In an article in the Trinidad Express Prime Minister of Trinidad Patrick Manning at the official launch of the steel band Divine Echoes expressed the hope that it would replace their desires for music forms such as reggae/dancehall, hip-hop and other popular genres which in his opinion "do not result, in the kinds of directions that we consider ideal for the young people of Trinidad and Tobago."

    The T&T PM is hopeful that the recently launched band, Divine Echoes, will sway the youth away from illicit living by turning them on to a more pristine form of music as opposed to the fare they are presently exposed to via the mass media.

    Just how one will convince the young people to turn away from their cherished Jay-Z, Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Soulja Boy, Munga, Fiddy, T-Pain and others of such ilk for the "Green Green Grass Of Home", none including Manning have yet explained.

    Well, from where Yardflex stands he has his job cut out for him!

    True thing.

    I have met toomuch Trinis who only listen to dancehall music which makes it pretty hard to replace.

    Can't front, Nuff trinis Just love the Jamaican culture and they will do anything to fit in, even if it means ignoring the music they grew up listening to.

    SOmeone correct me if i'm wrong please (i dont even know why im askin) one of my older friends is Trini and he loves to tell me stories about how pan men were the "badjohns" of Trini society back in the day and how pan music was looked down on by the upper class.

    Pretty ironic how things turn around, Now you have the upper class touting pan as "pristine" as opposed to the "ilk" of hip hop, and dancehall....

    Hilarious actually...
