The steel pan are a percussion instrument made from industrial drums, also referred to as pans, or steel drums. Steel pans originated in Trinidad and Tobago, after the French arrived in Trinidad with their slaves during the French Revolution. In 1880 percussion music was banned in the country and in the 1930s orchestras began to appear with instruments of dustbin lids and oil drums. When the U.S. Navy arrived in the early 1940s they were introduced to the steel pan and its popularity around the world spread. The first steel pans were made from used oil drums but are now manufactured as an instrument all on their own to specific requirements.
