Steel Drum

Just because I like them.

De pan music it is good.Ah Trinidad, the country of $2 cabbage and 25 cent per gallon gasoline- at least those were the prices when I was working there in the early 80s. The ratios may be similar still. Cabbage and the like would be cheaper if more were Trini-grown instead of being imported. A number of Trinis told me they stopped their commercial gardening projects because gangs would raid their gardens at night.

But can they do music and festivals!

I wonder if there's any hazardous waste left in those drums. I understand that molybdenum disulfide makes for a nice tone.

Moly disulfide makes them sound really slick 'cause it's a great lubricant.

I suppose they could play dirges on those drums, but I've never heard one. It's always been happy-time music.
