History of steel pan drumming
Musicians from around the world make Vienna their stopover and play in public, a task easily achievable by getting a permit issued by the municipal office of Vienna. Judging from the sheer numbers of music enthusiasts coming from around the globe, this does not seem to be a difficult task.
The national instrument of Trinidad & Tobago is the steelpan, or steel drum. HandCrafted from oil drums — although many of these drums never contained oil — these instruments are not actually drums in the membranophone sense, but are steel containers which are struck with a rubber-tipped stick to create beautiful music.

Created on Trinidad in the 1930s, the history of the steel pan can be traced back to the 1970s when African slaves were brought to the islands. These slaves brought with them hand drums, which were used during Carnival but were later banned by the British government.

In 1877 the law saw them as offensive. The instruments were replaced with bamboo stamping tubes, with metal containers, kitchen utensils and dust bins being used to create usable instruments and form bands.

After much experimentation, steel band musicians discovered different areas of the drum made different sounds depending if the metal surface was raised or flat. As the major economic export for Trinidad & Tobago is oil and natural gas, it makes sense these instruments would have evolved to use steel gas drums.

Amazing good sounds come from the steel pan drums.
