May 22, 2016, Boston, MA Today my daughter called me with exciting news about a documentry on the Steel Pan on TV. She was elated to see not only the show but her son's being glued to the TV wacthing it. I was in church at the time and I told her I would call her back. Eight hours later she called me and she was still excited about the show and how great it was that she was able to learn about the development of Steel Pan from Trinidad where I am from. My Grandson Dylan and his sister Jordan were exposed to steel pan music during my their great grand mother's funeral repast when myself and my brothers started playing in tribute to Manuelita Johnson who was one of the founders of our Rhythm Section Band Tempo. They both grabed sticks and joined in playing the insruments like if they had been playing for year both of them under 5. Thank you Shanaye for sharing Afropop because I can now share it with the rest of the world. Big Up log on to AFROPOP
