🎶“....all I can see is broken bottles from a far, and indication....de carnival is over”🎶 And just like that, it’s all done. This season was filled with lots of learning, struggles and triumphs! Lots to be said but more left to be unspoken. Always thankful for the opportunity to work with my brothers in music @poweredby_music and @mik3_lary . Proud of both your individual accomplishments as well with your respective medium bands and it’s only up from here.....KEEP PUSHING FELLAS! Thanks to @juniaregrello6kkmn and the management team/players of @calskiffle for allowing us to build with you guys over these past 5 years...... We’ve grown much since then and still loads more to grow.....definitely will be pushing harder to capture that champion spot! Also thanks to the faithful team that always come down from NY to support and show love on another scale!!! Thanks to @drummerville12 @4sureeee and the rest of the engine room for the vibes and also thanks to Bravo and @joshuaquillen for an awesome job at helping to bring the music to life. I’m always appreciative for new experiences and more so for the lessons learned along the way. This year was full of those and looking for the ones to come. Congrats to Desperadoes on capturing what we’ve all been working towards......that #1 spot......and also congrats to all bands that performed making this yet again one of the most competitive panoramas! #panorama2020 #tnt #trinidadandtobago🇹🇹 #trinidadcarnival2020 #music #vibes #musicislife #life #lessons #arranger #musician #undertheinfluence #percussiveinfluence
