Historical Film on the Construction of Steel Pans -
This is a link to a very informative film on YouTube. Filmed in 1956, legendary banjo artist and creator of the 5-string, long neck banjo, Pete Seeger, discovers the music of the steel pan. Seeger and his wife, Toshi, film how pans are made at a panyard in Port Of Spain. Notice that back in the 1950's, "Pan-'Round-the-Neck" was still the popular form of playing.
