Discover Our Instruments

When Words fail, music speaks.

It's a hard world right now. We absolutely get it.
And for us, music is how we get through it.

Making music is a way for many of us to express what we don’t know how to put into words. It’s meditative. It calms, soothes, and helps us navigate our own spirits and the world around us.

 

When our founder, Ron Kerns, first heard the sound of the steel drum — also called a steel pan or steelpan — it spoke to him.

An instrument with historic significance

The steel pan instrument originated in Trinidad and has significant cultural importance. An instrument of the resistance, it carries with it a message of hope and resilience. Trinidadians were banned from playing instruments, but they found a way to keep the music going. 

The music now flies free in trinidad, like their national bird, the scarlet ibis.

           We hope your music will help you fly free as well.
