Steelpan Mom and Daughter - Then & Now

The steelpan music movement has connected whole generations of players and the community with love, passion and commitment. In fact, it is not uncommon to find grandma or granddad, child and grandchild playing together in one steel orchestra in Brooklyn, New York. When Steel Talks Pan Photographers capture the essence of that reality from infant to young lady with mom and daughter who are both now veteran New York panorama players. By the way, Dad is an ace New York pan player himself, but that’s another story for another day...
