Steelpan like folklore has its roots buried deep within its followers, therefore as the people die, a part of the instrument dies.
Since information was being passed on by word of mouth, the loss of a follower meant the loss of a part of the steelpan heritage. As a result of this, certain facts were vague or lost and different accounts were conjoured up to fill in black spots.
These events have now been recorded by different people to make pan’s history as enigmatic for some as it is to play.
