The Steelpan, the only pitched percussive instrument invented in the 20th century, was created in the twin republic islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It has journeyed throughout the decades to evolve into an accepted and celebrated instrument.
Join Suzette Vidale as she speaks about the instrument's origins, evolution and current innovations.
Have fun while learning the proper technique of holding the sticks, stance and playing a steelpan.
Expect to learn a simple song, no musical knowledge required*.
