Meet Darius Austin of Guyana - Steelpan Performing Artist


right tap/click for profile

I am Darius Austin, a 22-year-old Guyanese who has a passion for the Steelpan art form. My pan life started in 2012 when I joined the Panwave Steelpan Academy which is a youth band that focuses on teaching the instrument to schools in their area. I later went on to join their Senior band, The Parkside Steel Orchestra, of which I am still a member.

 

I was also afforded the opportunity to become a member of the National Steel Orchestra where I represented Guyana on the International stage at Carifesta XIII and XIV in Barbados and Trinidad respectively. As my passion for pan grew, I decided to do it professionally and started my business: ‘Darius Austin Steelpan Entertainment’ in 2018. This has truly been a blessing as my passion is my job. I plan on using my platform to educate the younger generation about Steelpan and to continue to put Guyana on the map.
