Music in the Gallery: Pan Odyssey

Saturday 17 June, 2pm to 4pm

Sheer determination and a love of music resulted in the steelpan being developed. This invention grew through adversity and necessity in musician Alvin Rostant's homeland Trinidad and Tobago. Alvin invites you on a journey of discovery through his rousing live performance followed by the beautiful documentary Pan Odyssey.

Music in the Gallery: Roger Knox
