When Steel Talks Exclusive

SPOTLIGHT

- Original PanMan -
Ralph Davis

New York - October 1,  2004 

What if we could take you back to the beginnings of the pan movement, and have you relive the experience as if you were actually there?  Hear about the iron fist of the legendary Rudolph Charles, and laugh about, yet listen in wonder to what people did for the love of the mighty Pan Instrument?  Then, meet Ralph Davis!

 

When Steel Talks was privileged to add yet another historian to its archives in the chronology of the history of Pan.  A living, walking and breathing institution of pan, Ralph Davis (RD), one of the original members of the Desperadoes Steel Orchestra from the Hills of Laventille in Trinidad (even before the mighty Rudolph Charles) shared his experiences as a pioneering teenager who loved pan.  He takes us right up to his present day activities in New York where he is still blazing a trail to perfect the Pan art form.
