A Google Doodle was launched today, Tuesday 26 July to celebrate the introduction of Steelpan to the world during the 1951 Festival of Britain by the Trinidad All-Steel Pan Percussion Orchestra (TASPO).
Since then, Steelpan which was the only musical instrument invented in the 20th century from Trinidad and Tobago has evolved to become an instrument played around the globe.
The Doodle is a music video composed by Steelpan veterans Len “Boogsie” Sharpe and Etienne Charles who are the original composers of the music featured in the Doodle.
The Doodle illustrations are by Trinidad & Tobago based artist, Nicholas Huggins.
