Pan Is…

Role: Producer, Interviewer

From the moment the first note emerged from the curved face of a discarded oil drum, there was energy…transmuted from the resource the drum once contained, to a sound that redefined what music could be.

With an irrepressible spirit of determination, innovation, and creative expression, that note birthed not only a new instrument…it spawned a movement, a national identity, an undeniable energy.

This is a glimpse into steel pan’s journey, told through songs that have paid it homage.

The short doc “Pan Is…” was produced for the National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago, and was first screened during the 2023 Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference.
