The extremely talented, articulate, charismatic and forward-thinking Jahlani Roberts is highly intelligent. Full of exuberance for the steelpan art form and knows which way is up. Moreover, he is a do-er not a talker.
Jahlani has invested in his vision of what can be and should be with ‘both feet’ in. Never standing still, he has carved out a space within the performing arts sector where he can be most effective and impactful. A quick learner and study, he has turned his experiences and challenges into fuel, opportunities and a road map for success.
In a relatively short time Jahlani has developed into a surefire triple threat - performer, educator and administrator with the steelpan as his center and focal point. He is armed with solid expectations. And as part of his “World of Steelpan,” a phrase he has coined, Jahlani says “I have some big, big dreams... I would love to see a steelpan Hall of Fame one day. Something that validates our history and legitimizes us. Something that gives the future something to work towards - like, “I want to make the hall of fame!”...”
His face becomes intense as he lays out the litany of Pan-related things that he would like to see and expects to add to his accomplishments.
Get ready for this outstanding young man - he is here.
