Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
“Time waits on no one. If you enjoy the musical instrument, find a band and become a member. Don’t keep saying “I always wanted to... Just Do It! .....” - Yasmin Brito
At 12 years old she was playing pan in a steelband. And while the neighbors had less than kind things to say about this - she had fun. Much fun - made history by becoming one of the first of the firsts in the annals of pan - an unwitting trailblazer with memories and experiences that have lasted a lifetime. In an exclusive interview with When Steel Talks - panist, mom and former corporate Yasmin Brito shares her joys of her remarkable life long story with Pan, and the steelpan art form.
Great story Mrs. Brito.
Nice! It is great to see and hear from Yasmin, whom I have know for decades. I am proud (did not know) that Yasmin was perhaps the first "woman on the bass" in a home-town band. I am also glad to see her still active -as an old tenor-man- and sharing her talent. Continued best wishes.
