Hartt Steelband

Featuring the music of the Caribbean, the Hartt Steelband serves as an extension of the Hartt Percussion Ensemble. The group performs on authentic Trinidadian steel drums, created from finely tuned 55-gallon oil barrels, and accompanied by an authentic "calypso" percussion section. The Hartt Steelband's repertoire includes traditional Jamaican folk songs, Afro-Cuban "salsa," American popular music, Western European classics, and features the calypso and soca music of Trinidad.
