Humble thanks to June Small for inviting me to share my steelpan music and original compositions “Barrel Baby” and “Beautiful”.

    Note: The name of the instrument is “steelpan” or “pan”, for example the Global organization for the instrument is “PAN TRINBAGO” (not steel “drum”, please, it’s not a drum! This is what non-caribbean people call it as they dont know better – only we can teach them.) THANKS!
