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.
