                                                        This unseasonably warm spring weather
                                                  invokes images of relaxing on a remote beach,
                                                toes in the sand, the peaceful rhythm of the
                   t he s                     ocean’s lapping waves while the breeze carries the
                                            scent of blooming flowers in its soft embrace.
                                              Sounds like paradise, a soothing break from the
                                         daily grind of work, traffic jams and the demands of
                                       family.
                                          And while the beach may be little more than wishful
                                     thinking for many this time of year, its promise of peaceful
                                   relaxation isn’t so far away — at least musically speaking.
                                      On Saturday, April 14, the historic Monteith Ampitheatre
                                 at McClellan hosts the Southeast Steel Band Carnival, featur-
                                ing eight steel drum bands — including three local bands.
                                  “It’s going to feel like Jamaica for sure,” said Pete Conroy,
                               who serves on the Longleaf Arts Council, which has worked for
                              two years renovating the amphitheater. “I just couldn’t imagine a
                             more perfect setting for this kind of event.”
                                Though the novice initially associates steel drums with Jimmy
                            Buffet, the instrument has a rich history. It was invented on the
                           island of Trinidad around World War II and is national instrument
                          of Trinidad and Tobago.
                              The roots of the steel drum reaches back to African slaves, who
                         were placed on the island by Spanish and French plantation owners
                         in the 16th century. Through constant struggles to survive and the
                        hardships placed upon them by their “masters,” most of these African
                        slaves lost their native languages, leaving music as the only link to
                       their heritage.
                            What’s now known as steel drum, or pan band, began with the
                       metal beating bands of the early 1930s. The players used all metallic
                       instruments (such as tin pans, biscuit drums and dustbins). It was
                       soon discovered that these metal instruments changed pitch after
                       being beaten.
