Pan Making Videos Pan Making Videos Pan Making Videos Pan Making Videos SteelPan Videos Origins of the steelpan (or steel drum) They say necessity is the mother of invention, and for emancipated black slaves living in and around Laventille, just outside Port of Spain, rhythm was an ancestral right and necessity to all celebrations. When the colonial government banned drumming, bamboo branches were used in what came to be known as tambu bamboo bands. During World War II, the government banned both tambu bamboo and Carnival.
