Students will sail the Caribbean seas on the sound waves of steel drums with Gary Garlic as he charts a course in cultural awareness through a historical and musical demonstration. Students will learn how the outlawing of drums on many Caribbean islands led to people innovating and inventing instruments from steel, resulting in a unique sound as they claimed their independence and developed an art form all their own.
