Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

The hills of Escalier lands and Sorzanoville provided safe haven for the Orisha drummers, the tambour bamboo bands and the Casablanca Steelband. The valley which descended from the Laventille hills between Hermitage Road and Quarry Street to the East Dry River was defined as the community space for Casablanca first generation contributors to the new sound and music emerging from different sectors in the city. Enjoy the pictures,words and music from the Casablanca community. The website is a work in progress and hence content will be continuously added to enhance the historic canvas.I invite members and Steelpan lovers to engage with the Casablanca community and follow this historic journey.

Thanks Selo
From Seeba ( knew you in RACA at Ryerson)

I am a senior citizen, but I have longed to learn about Casablanca Steel Orchestra. As a child living at the corner of Oxford and Observatory Street between 1961 and 1962 I heard sweet steelband music and heard an adult say that it was Casablanca band.  We soon moved from the area and lived in Tunapuna and other locations, but I remembered hearing and longing to see Casablanca.
