Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan was released in London in 2015. It focuses on the inception of the steelpan in Trinidad & Tobago until its international recognition in 1951 at the Festival of Britain. Part 2: Pan Worldwide looks at the instrument’s impact in six countries: Canada, Japan, Nigeria, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.
