WST -  When Steel Talks

Duvone Stewart

Global - Diligence, professionalism and consistency could be said to be just a few of the watchwords and hallmarks which guide the life of Tobago-born 33-year old steelpan musician, arranger and performing artist Duvone Stewart.  And he has just capped his twenty-sixth year in pan with a never-before-achieved feat - claiming the championship in the Single Pan-band category for the fifth year running as arranger for La Horquetta Pan Groove out of east Trinidad.  Duvone has also tasted victory in the small steel orchestra category in 2004 as arranger of Diego Martin-based Merrytones Steel Orchestra.

In this exclusive 2010 interview, When Steel Talks (WST) delves into the steelpan world of Duvone Stewart which, at a tender age, began with a discovery and love for the national instrument of his country.  This passion was nurtured by his parents, who were both steelpan musicians.
