We at Bahamas Press are not overly eager to credit Perry Christie for many things. However, when we saw these Japanese University students presenting western music to a live audience, we had to say, Christie’s vision to the development of bands in the communities was the right and positive approach. It was all about building the community.
Hubert Ingraham on the other hand, came along and dismantled the community bands. YES HE STOPPED THE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN FROM LEARNING AN INSTRUMENT! One individual told Bahamas Press, the instruments are packed in boxes at the community centers collecting dust. My goodness, WHAT A SHAME! WHEN WILL THE INGRAHAM WUTLESS PRESS CORE REPORT THAT?
