Trinidad and Tobago's Tourism Development Company has announced plans to teach
the Indian and other cricket fans vising during the World Cup how to play
steel pan, the only musical instrument to be developed in the 20th century.
The Tourism organisation has prepared a programme 'Pan Sensation'
which will give visitors from India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh
and Bermuda the opportunity to learn to play the steelpan.
There will also be a 'Food Fair' where visitors can taste, doubles, roti, dhalpourie,
pelau and the like.
Former Miss Universe 1977 Penny Commissiong-Chow, who also
serves as Communications Manager, said "we are encouraging people to come
forward and keep the fetes and other outings because we will have visitors here
for two weeks and we must take advantage of this fact to sell Trinidad and Tobago."
