Panomundo Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan

Panomundo Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan

Slavery may have been the catalyst, but culture and passion formed this sound in Trinidad and Tobago. The first section of this two-part film highlights the precursors of the steelpan and the creation of the instrument until it gained international recognition in Britain in 1951. Interviews from steelpan legends, such as Ellie Mannette, Sterling Betancourt, Cliff Alexis and Ray Holman, are included.
