Badjohns at Panorama

" All Stars getting buried tonight.....Ah putting All Stars in Tunapuna cemetery tonight…..Ah not putting dem in a poorfoot dat too good for dem, and if ah cyar get one, Ah put dem in de San Juan when I go down south........."

Towards the track at the Queen's Park Savannah, and to the North Stand and its stage, Steelbands are in a fierce competition to get into the panorama finals. The mood in the Savannah is thick and less festive as factions of supporters hail insults at each other. The video begins with Renegades and ends with All Stars as the steelband passes Desperadoes parked to their right towards the long pull to the stage.
