Caribbean news. Musician and composer Chantal Esdelle will talk about pan and its significance to the history in Trinidad and Tobago Culture and the Bois Academy will share the essentials of the art of stickfight this Wednesday February 12th at 5.30 at Propaganda Space, 24 Erthig Road, Belmont.

Esdelle uses the premise that much of The African experience in the Americas has been documented through sound. She explores how this is done through the performance practice of the steelband in her masters thesis In our house: The realization of ‘self’ through sound in Clive Bradley’s musical arrangement of, and the Desperadoes Steel Orchestra’s preparation and performance of the calypso “In my House” for Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival Steelband competition. She will share aspects of this in Wednesday’s talk.
