This book chronicles the origin and evolution of the Steel Band orchestra and its diffusion in the Caribbean and beyond with special attention given to the nature of its origin and its spatial movement within the culture. The Steel Band was created by descendants of African Captives in the Caribbean who struggled to retain some elements of their culture while simultaneously rejecting elements of the captive culture that controlled their lives for three centuries.
