Steel pan music is most associated with our neighbouring islands of Trinidad and Tobago where the artform was born, but steel pan music is also extremely popular in Barbados as seen in the several pan events included in our Crop Over summer festival.
Steel pan events found on the 2011 Barbados Crop Over Calendar include:
- Pan Fusion – held at the official residence of the Prime Minister of Barbados, this combines steel pan music with the sounds of legendary local saxophonist Arturo Tappin
- Bridgetown Alive Pantabulous – the capital city of Bridgetown, Barbados comes alive to the sounds of steel pan along with stilt walkers and dancers
- Pan in de City – steel pan music envelopes Barbados’ capital Bridgetown with pan by the waterfront.
- Pan Pun De Sand – a wonderful family event at the seaside with steel bands from Barbados and across the Caribbean.
Pan in de City – Bridgetown, Barbados!
