Steelpan virtuoso Mighty Jamma returns with a second volume of lively pieces that fuse Trinidad and Tobago’s steelpan music with Jamaican reggae, ska and Caribbean jazz. On Reggae Pan Classics Volume Two, Might Jamma is joined by his brother, musician and producer Barry ‘Mackadub’ Stewart.
Might Jamma is the UK’s steelpan champion and has an extensive discography. The steelpan was invented in Trinidad and Tobago in the late 1930s. Steelpans or steel drums are made from oil drums and they range from low bass to high sopranos.
Reggae Pan Classics Volume Two is a wide ranging steelpan album by one of the finest performers of this Caribbean instrument.
