Who invented the steel pan? How was it invented? No one is quite sure, but there are many different stories about who started the steel band, and how it started. But everyone agrees about where the steel band started. It was in Trinidad, in the Caribbean.
The steel band spread first through the Caribbean islands, where there are now a large number of steel bands, and then it spread around the world. In recognition of this global steel band musical phenomenon, the first World Steel Band Music Festival was organised in Trinidad in 2000. Steel band music is today used all over the world in education to bring better understanding and appreciation of music. It is also used as music therapy to benefit both adults and children.
