Steel Pan Drum Circle

World music and contemporary percussion master Ray McNamara shares his unique musical perspective, performing a blend of soca (soul of calypso) and jazz on the Steel Pan Drum.

Learn a little of the history and evolution of this surprisingly modern 20th century instrument, which was originally resourcefully created out of found objects. The audience will be treated to the magical island tones of the Steel Pan and have the opportunity to try out instruments and be part of a drum circle.
