Pan Trinbago - Trinidad & Tobago

Pan Trinbago is a cultural organization which was incorporated by Act of Parliament, 5 of 1986. It formerly operated and was registered as a Union representing the interest of steelpan players. The general membership of the steelband Movement decided that it would better serve their interests in the development and promotion of the steelband, to become incorporated by an Act of Parliament in Trinidad and Tobago, the birth place of the steelband and the main centre for the propagation of this art form.
