    SYNOPSIS:

    Historian and Journalist Kim Johnson’s research and publications span Indian music in Trinidad and the Chinese contribution to Trinbagonian society. His major interest and the main focus of his work over the past decade has been the oral and pictoral history of the steelband. His interviews with pioneers and others in and around the movement together with the photographs and film that he has unearthed are powerful testament to what Kim has referred to as The Audacity of the Creole Imagination, the title of a film he has recently completed and are the subject of his forthcoming book, The Soul in Iron: The Genesis of the Steelband Movement in Trinidad 1939- 1951.
