Re: South seas music

The Steel Drum, or "Pan", is a unique instrument, and one of the most recently invented! It is a skillfully hammered 55-gallon oil barrel which has been carefully tuned by hand to produce perfect musical tones. The drums were developed on the Caribbean island of Trinidad during the early years of the 20th century.
