Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Martin Daly

,,,Regarding merit, I have repeatedly pointed out, for example, that our disadvantaged communities comprise many persons of enormous scientific talent who invented and perfected and now maintain the steel drum. Its music now captivates the world, although undervalued in its own home, even by those who should naturally be moved to support it and devise policy initiatives for its further development and marketing.

There has been reckless neglect properly to invest in and develop our music and performing arts talent and to reshape the education system so that it provides equality of opportunity outside of traditional grammar school subjects, for which not everyone has the aptitude. For more than a decade I have pleaded for the necessary investment so that there would be more music and fewer guns.

Arguably governments have seen those in the disadvantaged communities, maybe not as cockroaches, but as ants, voting ants to be led to the ballot box, following the sugar trail of make-work programmes and unaccounted for steelband Panorama dollars, unrefined by any social development component or desire to lift the excellent out of the mass to the highest pinnacles.,,,

When you read this article and you read the GUARDIAN EDITORIAL (OUR LAWLESS STATE) -- TING REAL BAD!!!

Ah wonder when DOCTOR DOLLY and BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE will address the "UNACCOUNTED FOR [SIXTY MILLION] PANORAMA DOLLARS"?

Men like MARTIN DALY and LAWFORD DUPRES should be running PAN TRINBAGO if we ever hope to be moved to support STEELDRUM MUSIC and devise policy initiatives for its further development and marketing.

The REALITY is we continue to LIVE in a state of DENIAL...

Re-Percussions: PAN!

Re-Percussions: Our African Odyssey is the return of the Trinidad & Tobago steelpan to its African roots. Nigerian panman Bowie Sonnie Bowei plans to nurture a steelband movement in Africa. But can he introduce a new hybrid drum to the motherland from which all Caribbean drums came? Bowei's visit to Trinidad to learn about the instrument, and his attempts to introduce it to Nigeria traces the journey made by the drum, which African slaves brought to the New World, where it became something different, and is now returning to its ancestral home as a stranger.
