Veteran mas designer Rosalind Gabriel says she is happy with her band placing first in the Junior Bands category (Large) of the NCC Band of the Year competition. She said so yesterday shortly after the results were announced at a media briefing at NCC’s offices, St Clair.

Gabriel, who was celebrating her 18th win in the category, said she was extremely happy.

“I never take winning for granted. I do my best and I hope for the best. I would love to congratulate everyone who placed in junior and senior categories.

“This is my 18th title in the NCC band of the year and each time it seems like my first time,” Gabriel said.

She said her presentation, titled Another Day in Paradise, was part of her focus on the beauty of the country.

“Every year I try to focus on a different part of life in T&T and I choose different places which are like national treasures. They are exquisite places to visit and I try to showcase that,” she added.
