When I started playing the steelpan (over 15 years ago), my very first performance on stage was for a showcase of steelbands at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts. A band named Panatics performed and a there was a female pannist playing in the front line with an energy unmatched by her fellow musicians. I was enthralled. She jammed like her life depended on it and played with a passion like I had never seen before. That pannist's name was Jamea Zuberi.
