Steel pan started in Trinidad. On the S.E. corner where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. A person who plays the steel pan is called a pannist. Enter Xavier. A 2nd generation pannist from Trinidad. Upon meeting Xavier you will notice his easy going ways. The way he sits, talks and even answers you with his "Come on man. You know me. I'm the easiest guy around here". Just puts a smile on your face. I spoke to Xavier about my music and asked him if he would be interested in playing together one day. He happily accepted as he has never played country before with a steel pan. So keep an eye out in the future of us playing together.
