Steelband performers in Trinidad and Tobago (steeldrum’s birthplace) since 1950, have been represented by three organizations: the Steelbands Association, the National Association of Trinidad and Tobago Steelbandsmen (NATTS), and (now) Pan Trinbago.One man served as the head of all three.

He also served as an executive member of the Carnival Development Committee (CDC).His involvement in steelbands began in 1941, as a 17-year old joining the world’s first steelband, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, as a masquerader.He was an executive member of Trinidad and Tobago’s first steelbands’ “union”, the…See More
