Steel Pans

Do you know what is amazing? The ability of a cut-off, dented steel drum to make awesome music. Don't beleive me? Meet the steel pan. As you can see, on this model, the notes (dents) are individually labeled. Another piece of trivia, this drum is the national instrument of Trinidad, Africa, (it's an island) between Africa and South America. Look it up some time. For some tourist info, check out http://www.visittnt.com/. Pretty nice site! They even have an entire section dedicated to the steel pan, found at http://www.visittnt.com/pan.html. Cool!
