STEEL PAN: a Spiritual Journey

Pan is the only musical instrument invented in the 20th Century.

According to legend, Winston “Spree” Simon, invented the first steel pan in 1939. It is the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago.

Developed in the back yards and streets of Port-of-Spain, the steelpan gave voice to generations of disenfranchised Black youth, and has been called a spiritual drum.

We are delighted to share these four beautiful films about the Pan on CARIBBEANTALES-TV.COM!
