We are so very honored to be inspired by the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago, the steel pan!  It has a rich and fascinating history from the 30's and 40's until today.  From its deep roots in Africa to tamboo bamboo bands and biscuit tins to Winston "Spree" Simon and the crucial innovations of Ellie Mannette, Anthony Williams and Bertie Marshall to the proliferation of the modern steelbands and steel orchestras we have today!  Once this marvelous instrument grabed hold of our soul, there was no looking back!
