The Laventille SteelBand Festival Foundation presents the 19th annual SteelBand street parade and we were there to catch it in all its glory. It was such a pleasure being there first hand to see the gifts of the pannists! Wait until the end to see who won. We had fun. Thanks for watching
Steelpan is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago. Steelpan musicians are called pannists. Steelpans was invented in T&T in the 1930s and is widely regarded as the only major musical instrument to be invented in the 20th century. It is a skillfully hammered 55 gallon oil drum which is carefully tuned to produce exact sounds.
This is culture and it's beautiful. Enjoy!
