Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

An educator, composer, steelpanner, and tuner, Khuent Rose is a busy man. When describing how he has navigated creative life during the pandemic, he compares himself to Sylvester Stallone’s celebrated antihero.

In mid-March and early April, the Crown Heights-based musician became even busier when he found himself caring for family members affected by COVID-19.

“I was being Rambo between two houses, trying to also take care of my other grandmother and my immunosuppressed father. I was wearing a gas mask over my face and stripping down to my underwear just long enough to give them a bag of fruit and run back to the other house. Over at my grandmother’s house, she was lying in bed and barely coherent of what her life is and breathing extremely heavily. She is eighty-four,” Khuent explains. His mother was just beginning to recover from COVID-19 as his grandmother fell ill.

“This is the sphere that I’m supposed to operate in,” he explains while maintaining his inspiringly good humor.
