There are many benefits to be derived from the steel pan art form outside of the entertainment industry.

This is according to Cultural Ambassador and President of the Youlou Pan Movement Rodney Small, who highlighted specifically, the development value there is in persons, especially the youth getting involved with the instrument.

“The instrument is a big part of our identity as Caribbean people. As we always say as an executive, pan is a community, and it helps with different rural transformation, it helps with different disciplines, it helps with different character building, it helps with unity, so outside of the entertainment value we see all these other developmental stuff that comes from the instrument,” he said.

Mr. Small noted that over the years the pan players have produced excellent academic performances, emphasizing the important role the instrument plays in the lives of the youth.
