Remembering Some of Those In Pan We’ve Lost in 2021 - Composer & Arranger Godwin Bowen

 Godwin Bowen

Much respected composer, arranger and musician Godwin Bowen passed July 16, 2021. see more

For each of those nine (9) original pieces, Bowen composed the song and the lyrics and also arranged both the calypso demo version and the Steelband Panorama version. The titles of the songs and the lyrics show an arranger and composer who had taken the time to observe and understand the Panorama tradition and the essence of its dynamic, in order to do justice to it in his music.

Pamberi is grateful for the opportunity that we had to partner with such a gifted and thoughtful musician....Godwin you did good, in fact you did better than good, and students of the steelband, its music and the Panorama tradition owe you a debt of gratitude. Thank you and Nuff Respect!   --  Andre Moses
