Postcards from Trinidad: Six

Desperadoes
Well it’s Carnival Saturday and here I am spending this early part of the afternoon with you on Gadling. After two nights of fetes I figured I’d play it by ear tonight and just mellow out for the rest of the afternoon. With that being said here is a shot from the pan lime me and a group of folks checked out a couple night’s back. Taken in the Desperadoes pan yard, where the band played a melody over and over striving for perfection, the drums from which this older gentleman plays produced a deep rich sound full of bass. While I haven’t been following the pan competitions much, I’m told the Desperadoes placed third in one of their last and are really trying to step their pan game up.
