Steel Band Performance

Thursday 18 October 2018 - noon - 3pm

Coming to UEL, a traditional African-Caribbean steel band performance!

The drums were developed on the Caribbean island of Trinidad during the early years of the 20th century. Old rubbish tins, car parts and stolen garbage can lids formed the first "Iron Bands", which led to the realization that a dented section of a barrel head could produce a musical tone.

Careful refinement of this amazing discovery produced the modern Steel Drum instrument and the large orchestral Steel Drum Bands, a deserved source of great national pride!
