Montreal based pan band Salah's Steel Orchestra managed to yet again beat out 12 other steel orchestras to record their fourth consecutive Pan Alive title.
Much of the 13 competing steel bands played the popular song "Battle Zone' as their song of choice, but in the end Salah's Steel Academy's rendition of the song (arranged by Salah Wilson) earned the top score.
