The infectious beats and rhythm of LH Pan Groove from Trinidad caused the audience to form a line behind them, as they performed at Brandons Beach yesterday. Men, women, boys and girls were treated to performances from Pan Groove as well as local and regional pan players at the highly anticipated Pan Pun De Sand. Thousands flocked to the Spring Garden location, where the stage was placed to the left of Weisers on the Bay and backing the Flour Mill, allowing space for more patrons. Producer of the event, Karen Pestaina of the National Cultural Foundation, said she anticipated more than the 8 000 people who attended last year.
