    • 824 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Steel drum music has the ability to move an audience like no other type of music. From the first note, the songs exude a happiness from within each pannist.

    Eight marching drums menacingly stand surrounded by the dim light of flickering fluorescent bulbs dangling above. The new recruits enter the room and slowly walk to their respective drum—their new homes for the next hours. All members stand with wide eyes and unstable posture. They nervously wait for the tech’s commands. The room encompassed in a seemingly endless silence.
