What is the Steelpan?
The steelpan originated on the islands of Trinidad & Tobago in the early 1900s. The steelpan is the only acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century. Crafted from a 55-gallon oil drum and played with mallets. In Addition to the advancement in technology with the drums used in crafting the steelpan, today's instrument is viewed as much more than a novelty.
