Steelband Music Lead Sheet

composed and arranged by Pelham Goddard

Global - Veteran songwriter and steelband music arranger Pelham Goddard continues to set the pace.  He has now made publicly available the full lead sheet to "Roaming," the tune of choice performed by the 2008 National Steelband Music Festival  (better known as Pan Is Beautiful XI) Champions, Exodus Steel Orchestra.  “Roaming” took first place honors at this prestigious competition (Trinidad & Tobago's 2008 ‘Pan Is Beautiful XI’) as the best Tune of Choice.  With the lead sheet of his exquisite composition - “Roaming” - Mr. Goddard has provided other bands interested in learning the music, the opportunity. 


For the Pan Is Beautiful XI festival, Exodus thought of doing something different, because most of the big classical pieces where already beautifully played on the steelpan instrument, and the festival judges knew all of those ‘by heart.’  Pelham Goddard had composed a song for the local government of Trinidad and Tobago called ‘Roaming’ - the concept being that the music will take you through all of the communities of Trinidad & Tobago, with different rhythms.  So for the festival Goddard decided to go worldwide with the same concept; he started in Europe, and moved on, ‘roaming’ through  Africa, China, India, America, Jamaica, ending back in Trinidad and Tobago.  Hence the name of the song - “ROAMING.”

The audio you are listening to is the actual performance of “Roaming” by Pan Is Beautiful XI champions Exodus Steel Orchestra from Trinidad and Tobago.
