Panigma is a group of professional musicians and educators from Binghamton who formed with the sole goal to bring better Caribbean music to the world. While each member of the group comes from a highly diverse background, the music that is produced when these musicians perform together is second to none. The key to the success of Panigma is their ability to take traditional and popular songs, put a Caribbean twist on them, and mold them into music that is guaranteed to make people dance and have a great time.
Since 2000, Panigma has been performing for a variety of audiences and venues. Whether it be colleges, weddings, corporate events, high schools, clubs, or private parties, Panigma always delivers a high-energy performance which has put smiles to the faces of audiences of all ages. With over three hours of solid material, Panigma is the most versatile and sought-after steel band on the market.
Panigma also has extensive experience in conducting educational clinics about Caribbean and Latin music that are reinforced by their live performance. These clinics are perfect for college and high school multi-cultural programming.
