I LOVE STEELBAND

I am a homesick Trinidadian living in Atlanta, GA. U.S.A.. I have been home only once since I left ten(10)years ago.
I have been watching the gastronomical prices that people here in the U.S. pay for steelpans.
Upwards of US$4000.00. They are being sold by companies in Germany,Switzerland and even right here in the U.S.
Now I believe in free enterprise and people anywhere can market anything. It's all about money and profits but, for goodness sake, someone , anyone,
TAKE SOME INITIATIVE AND DO SOMETHING. TRY TO KEEP THE MONEY IN TRNIDAD WHERE IT BELONGS.
I know that someone can build these pans,market and ship the blessed things for less than $4000.00 dollars. WAKE UP PEOPLE, SOMEONE HAS TO FIGURE IT OUT.
I would love to find a way to buy these pans direct from TRINIDAD. It is a real shame that
more companies in TRINIDAD can't find a way to get these items online so they can be bought by people worldwide. That is "OUR INSTRUMENT " yet
others all around the world are capitalizing in on it on the E-Commerce market. I am from ARIMA and I played in the National Panorama Festival when I was young.
I would like to pass on my heritage on to my children,so,for the sake of the young ones please find a way to keep our "GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS" and its' PROFITS at home.
LOVE TO MY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYMEN & WOMEN
AND MY BEAUTIFUL
TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
