Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
The 9th Montreal International Steelpan Festival took place at the end of June 2009 in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The event featured both a junior and adult steelpan panorama with six orchestras in total vying for honors in the categories. With this year's festival barely over, plans are already afoot for a grand 2010 edition of the festival, which will celebrate its tenth anniversary. Event organizer and president of the International Festival is Salah Wilson of Salah's Steelpan Academy; together with his family of steelpan musicians - they are the backbone of this annual steelband event.
