Congrats to Cheros!
CONGRATULATIONS to the St. Paul’s community band, FLOW Commancheros, and those responsible for keeping the spirit of this art-form alive and relevant, despite the uphill battle faced by steelbands today.
There is none other than the steelband movement, and outside of our educational institutions, that can take credit for the development of our youth, then and now; a movement that has produced engineers, doctors, lawyers, police, calypsonians, dock workers, politicians, etc.
It’s a feat that others may ignore; but a commendable achievement, nonetheless, that can’t be disputed and must be applauded by those of us who appreciate the difference between what is fleeting and what remains steadfast.
