Asami Nagakiya - Gone but not Forgotten: Music Album featuring her Original Steelpan Composition.

 It is just over seven months to date, since we in the steelpan fraternity lost an incredible musician and a great friend. Little did we know that February 2016, would be the last time that many of us would see Asami Nagakiya’s smile or hear her laugh, as she stumbled through some awkward phrases in our local palance. Perhaps then, it is fitting that our last real memory of Asami, is of her standing proudly on stage on the night of Panorama Finals, doing what she loved. After weeks of highly energetic yet gruelling rehearsals, she was again ready to give her all on our national instrument -the steelpan. Such is the inspiration behind Khari Codrington’s latest composition entitled, “Someday.” Representative of the yearning to reunite with deceased loved ones, the song is one of three featured tracks off of the Codrington Pan Family’s latest offering. Also featured on the album is the original composition of “Dreaming Girl” by Asami (that she never got the opportunity to record.) However, through the efforts of the Codrington Pan Family, the project has finally been achieved. Perhaps then, her dream of living in our beautiful twin islands has also been realised as she now lives on in the hearts of all Trinbagonians who have been touched by her talent and her love for our culture. Someday (the Album) was pre-released in Japan at the Yokohama Steelpan Festa in August. From September 17, 2016 physical and digital copies can be purchased locally and globally. For further information please contact Mr. Khari Codrington (Manager, Codrington Pan Family) at either 1.868. 477.2852 or kharicodrington@gmail.com
