Sisters In Steel Rule The House
A Women's Month Celebration


New York - March  2005

Our celebrations of Women of Steel continue as our sisters in steel continue to chime in from all over the world and all walks of life.  When Steel Talks has been extremely fortunate to have had contributions from none other than the likes of Mrs. Merle Albino-de Coteau, and Dr. Dawn Batson among others.  Their loyalty, accomplishments and commitment to the steelpan music movement are second to none.  Moreover, these sisters in steel, like countless unnamed other women, have at times led, supported, carried and sustained the steelpan music art form without acknowledgement or fanfare.  They have earned and command the respect of the steelpan movement not only through their accomplishments but also through their brilliance, strength, elegance, talent, greatness and humility.  We salute you all.
