Youth bands a hit
THE YOUTH CONCERT following Thursday’s Broken Trident Run was hailed as a resounding success.
The evening concert took place at The Glebe pasture in St George and featured bands from mostly secondary and tertiary schools, which performed a mix of pan, instrumentals, R&B and local music. Each band was enthusiastically greeted by an energetic unofficial front row posse, dressed in the national colours and waving flags frantically.
The bands – taken from the Barbados Community College (De Men); Christ Church Foundation (Next Gen); Alleyne School; Harrison College; the 1688 Junior Band and more – had something for everyone, including nationalistic tunes such as Natahlee’s Colours and tunes such as Fame, Try Jah Love and Now That We Found Love as well as spouge hits.
