Balmatie Samaroo, wife of pan
arranger/composer Jit Samaroo,
remains disappointed over what she
says is Sanch Electronix s failure to
consult her before selling some of
Samaroo s music online to help pay
his medical bills.
Samaroo, 64, is best known as the
arranger for BP Renegades, but has
worked with many other steelbands
and has been given two national awards
and an honorary doctorate. He is now
suffering from Alzheimer's.
The music being offered by Sanch
is a digital download of an album called
Pancendental Elixia and includes a suite
of eight pieces, From a Point of Love,
composed by Samaroo and recorded
by his family band the Samaroo Jets
The T&T Guardian reported last
month that the plan was to donate the
proceeds from the sales to covering
some of Samaroo's medical expenses.
But Balmatie Samaroo said on Sep-
tember 5 that the family would not
accept the funds from this project.
"My husband was a fiercely personal
man, who was very particular with the
types of projects and activities his name
was affiliated with," she explained.
"This is now the responsibility of his
immediate family, in this his hour of
So while the intent might seem to
be a good one, she said, "Not talking
to the family beforehand was very dis-
respectful, and could lead to a lot of
misunderstanding. Jit has a family that
is taking loving care of him, so anyone
wishing to do anything in his name
should first contact us for our approval
before going public with their inten-
She added that the public disclosure
had caused the family unhappiness and
In addition, in a statement that she
said was written with a heavy heart
on her husband's behalf, she empha-
sised: "We would like to make it abun-
dantly clear that members of Jit Sama-
roo's family, who represent him legally,
had no prior knowledge of this project,
(and) have not given anyone permission
to use the name Jit Samaroo' for any
fund-raising activity of this kind, and
there is no fundraising activity that is
sanctioned by the family of Jit Samaroo
for him at this time."
Anyone wishing to use Jit Samaroo's
name in future is asked to contact her
before doing so. Contacted for a com-
ment, Simeon Sandiford, managing
director of Sanch Elextronix, said, "It
is unfortunate that the intent of the
project has been clearly misunderstood.
Nevertheless, I am advised that the
matter has been resolved."

by the magistrate why he stole the crops, Ali remained

in 2000, for which he was sentenced to 30 days and
cocaine possession, for which he was fined $1,000.
The magistrate ordered the crops be returned to the
