The Steelpan (also known as steel drum or pan) is an especially unique musical instrument originating from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Duncan Morellet began to play with saxophone and bass from his early age. About eight years ago, when he first encountered with the pleasant melody of Steelpan, he was deeply attracted. Ever since then, he also started a pan soloist career playing and recording with several bands in France.
In the afternoon, Duncan is going to perform two solos regarding the accoustic, and compositions pieces with his amazing steelpan at Rockbund Art Museum. Besides, in another evening, Duncan will embrace his friends who are talented musicians in Shanghai to present a calypso and Caribbean Jazz as a group for the audience to experience more scenery about the museum inadvertently.
