The band has written and recorded four original compositions, El Anuncio Divino, El Gran Nacimiento, Serenal de Noche, and Media Noche en Belen ;all compositions, in the traditional parang style. Two of our original songs were chosen as the songs of choice for the St Joseph Convent Port of Spain ‘Parang in a Pot” 2017 competition.
