The Panyard Comes To Carlsbadistan

by The Editors on October 28, 2008

Newsound-1The Caribbean rhythms of the “steel pan” drums warm hearts around the world, but on November 1, 2008 at 5:30 PM at The Carlsbad Village Theatre, 2822 State Street, the sounds of Trinidad and Tobago come to Carlsbadistan on film and in person.

Keli Ross-Ma’u will be premiering his documentary In The Panyard and playing a live concert following the film.

Keli Ross-Ma’u, a music student from the U.S., studies and performs with the Pamberi Steel Orchestra in Trinidad, the birth place of the steel pan. Ross-Ma’u gets an insider’s experience of the Panyard, a community center where people of all ages from the surrounding neighborhood gather for steel pan rehearsals, and he learns how the country’s unique instrument and personal methods of teaching music create a close bond within the community.

All tickets are $22 at the door, or $20 if purchased in advance. Click the link to purchase tickets.
