  THE INTERNATIONAL STEELBAND HALL OF FAME is art on the move

Every instrument has its hall of fame except the steelpan.
But, this instrument, a 20th century musical wonder, which was created in Trinidad and Tobago
in the 1940s and is claimed to be its national instrument does not have a hall of fame in the land of its birth.
Therefore, I have decided to establish The International Steelband Hall of Fame on this internet site
to recognize the many steelbands, tuners, panists, leaders, pioneers, arrangers, composers and contributors
who have given their talents, skills, creativity, money and energies to the growth and development of the steelband movement. Many people have struggled and labored at great costs to bring the steelpan
to the world. I want to offer special thanks to Monika Nicoletti and pan-jumbie.com for giving me
this opportunity and space to establish The International Steelband Hall of Fame.
