Classical Steel

Playing classical music on the steelpan showed Trinidad society that a percussion instrument invented in the poorer areas of Port of Spain could reach the heights of a symphony orchestra. The film looks at the importance of classical music  in the development of the steelband and its acceptance worldwide as a legitimate instrument.
