The TNUA Steel Band gave a year-end outdoor concert at the Lotus Pond Stage, which was also meant to usher New Year 2018. 
 
Their wonderful concert presented a number of Calypso, Reggae and Bossa Nova pieces, including “Backbay Shuffle,” “Give a Little Love,” “KoKomo,” “Limbo,” “Miami Beach,” “The Proposal,” “Confusion Reggae,” “Jump in the Line,” “No Woman No Cry,” “Cinnamon & Clove,” “Sway” and “Both of Them.”
 
The steel band was formed by almost 50 students from the Departments of Music, Traditional Music, Fine Arts and New Media, who attended the steelpan music program offered by Prof. Sarah Barnes-Tsai. 
 
The program was divided into two classes. Class A was for music students and Class B was open to all other TNUA students who were interested in percussion. 
 
Class A students intended to hone their percussion skills, learn music arrangements and master the art of playing the steelpan.
 
For Class B students, they were there to learn the basic skills of percussion music and get an understanding of different instruments.    
 
Prof. Barnes-Tsai, a percussionist who is well-versed in steelpan, jazz and world music, has been teaching steelpan music classes for 29 years. She has led steel bands to perform at the Kuandu Arts Festival.
