Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

PANOMUNDO Award-winning Filmmakers raising funds to tell the history and influence of the Steelpan

Did you know that Trinidad & Tobago can give claim to having the only instrument invented in the 20th century? Though it originated by accident, the steelpan has given rise to a movement that can be seen in the US, UK, Switzerland, Japan and more! This promo video shows the evolution of steelpan from the island and its influence on the rest of the world.

This film was made by Keith Musaman Morton and Charysse Tia Harper. We hope to complete "Panomundo" with your support. For more information, visit Xplore the World:
