What a wonderful summer I have been having, performing around the city at different events and keeping busy. One way that really matters is when I get the opportunity to teach people about the illustrious instrument, the steelpan. I, along with Andre Rouse, Artistic Director of Souls of Steel, have had the pleasure of teaching the Steelpan to youth who are a part of Impact 'n Communities. They are a "registered not for profit, social service, community development and engagement organization that is steadily working to improve communities across the GTA."
We've been with them for the past 4 weeks and have been having a blast teaching them about the history and development of pan. The students have also see footage of steelbands and soloists from around the world.
I'll keep you up to date and let you know when "Impact Steel Orchestra" will be performing.
