So expound Caspar.

This is an all too familiar story. Indulge for a moment and enjoy the nostalgia of this band, Esso Trinidad Tripoli All Stars. Their struggle, their sound, their style, the fashions and their selections. Versatile and varied....From an oil drum to a steel drum, a Steelband to a Steel Orchestra. History preserved.
