Panomundo is a feature-length documentary told in two parts about the history of the steelpan (steel drum) and its global influence. Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan was released in London in 2015. It focuses on the inception of the steelpan in Trinidad & Tobago until its international recognition in 1951 at the Festival of Britain. Part 2: Pan Worldwide looks at the instrument’s impact in six countries: Canada, Japan, Nigeria, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.
First, there will be a screening of Part 1 (42 mins) followed by an intermission with refreshments. The World Premiere of Part 2 will begin promptly at 7:30PM. A Q&A with award-winning filmmakers Keith Musaman Morton and Charysse Tia Harper will be held afterwards along with a recognition of steelpan legends. The night will terminate with a steelband performance.

Victor Provost is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading voices on the unique, and often misunderstood, steel pan (or steel drum). Through appearances at concert halls, clubs, and stages around the world, he has been meticulously developing a reputation as a «dazzling soloist», crafting an improvisational voice and style to be reckoned with. With a strong foundation in bebop, a contemporary sensibility, and deep roots in Caribbean music, he works in countless genres and musical styles. Heralded as “Jazz Percussionist of the Year” by Washington City Paper five years running, he is truly a local treasure with global appeal.
