    SYNOPSIS:

    A historical chronicle of the development of the steelpan in Trinidad and Tobago – the socio-economic conditions that gave birth in the 20th century to the only complete family of tuned, acoustic percussion instruments. A visit to Panyard Steelpan factory shows how the instruments are manufactured and maintained (blended) by master tuner, Earle Wong in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
