On Wednesday October 12th, starting at 7pm, you can see the second section of a two-part documentary – Panomundo – that explores the history of the steelpan, the emblematic music of Trinidad-Tobago, and its global influence.
Three years ago, a screening at Tate South Lambeth Library of Panomundo Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan introduced how the steelpan became an integral part of Trinidad-Tobago society, gaining international recognition at the Festival of Britain in 1951.
Panomundo Part 2: Pan Worldwide traces the impact of the music internationally. The documentary includes interviews with Earl La Pierre Sr, Russell Henderson, Cliff Alexis, Michael “Mannish” Robinson, Lennox “Boogie” Sharp and Chief Bowie S Bowie.
The director will be there to talk about the documentary and answer your questions.
Free of charge. Refreshments available.
This screening, a cooperation between the library service and Friends of TSL, is part of Lambeth’s Black History Month programme.
