Four years in the making, these five films document the pioneering musical work of Andy Narell and a host of collaborators, featuring The WDR Big Band, Relator, and Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra, with guest appearances by David Rudder, Peter Minshall, Ray Holman, Paquito D’Rivera, and many others.
From the panyards of Trinidad to the Köln Philharmonic in Germany to the streets of New York City, these films follow Narell’s extraordinary journey as a musician and composer exploring the possibilities of the steel pan.
