History of the Steel Band, The The origins of the steel band are shown to be inextricably bound up with the history of the Caribbean, where music and celebrations of Carnival were feared and often banned by successive colonial authorities. With its roots in rebellious youth culture, the steel band testifies to the creativity and inventiveness of its founders and early practitioners. This fascinating account is supplemented by many illustrations and photographs, and there is a final bonus of a CD sampler of steel band music.
