The Champion Steel Bands of Trinidad

Headliners at Carnival and pan competitions, these six champion steel bands from Trinidad offer listeners songs that hum gently or dance wildly. Participating ensembles are the Katzenjammers, The Invaders, The Fascinators, the Southern All Stars, The Highlanders, and, notably, the all-female Girl Pat Steelband. This field recording was made by Emory Cook.
