Steelpans (also known as steel drums or pans, and sometimes, collectively with other musicians, as a steel band or orchestra) is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago. Steel pan musicians are called pannists.

CORNISH: Ellie Mannette founded a group, the Invaders Steel Orchestra, with two of his brothers. As his invention caught on, he left Trinidad to travel, to play and to teach.

Elliott "Ellie" Mannette. He has been called many things in his life including the "Stradivarius of Steel," "Father of the Modern Steel Drum Band," "Master of the Steel Drum," and Dr. Mannette. I prefer to call him the "Steel Rebel" because in his seventy-seven years of life, Ellie Mannette has continually rebelled against anyone or anything taking him away from his life's passion and work-the steel drum. His passionate rebellion has helped to create one of the most significant musical innovations of the twentieth century. Mannette was born in San Souci, Trinidad in 1926. He began his musical journey at age eleven in preparation for Carnival as a member of Alexander's Ragtime Band. Created by Alexander Ford, this band of steel featured performers banging away on garbage can tops, grease barrels, biscuit drums, and paint tins.
