The Caribbean Steel Rhythms Northcote
June 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Caribbean Association of Victoria -CaribVic Inc. has a Community Steelband based in Northcote Victoria.
The CaribVic Steelband consists of 23 recycled oil drums fashioned into chromatically pitched percussion instruments originating from Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies, and from their inception in the 1930s, have been tightly tied to community, and inclusive of the socially disadvantaged. The CaribVic steelband’s repertoire encompasses Calypso, Latin-style and Reggae as well as arrangements of more popular Western songs.
For performance purposes, the Steelband works best as purely instrumental.
However the Boite choristers known as Thursday’s Children will perform their repertoire of Folk songs during interludes.
