Liz Mannette launches new digital steelpan content

Some new pan apps and pan-related games will soon be released, says steelpan entrepreneur and designer-cum-lawyer Liz Mannette, who runs Liz Mannette LLC, a design studio for steelpan-inspired projects. Mannette, who has been designing steelpan-themed jewelry for over 11 years, has extended into the media and entertainment world and spent the last year in development with local and international artists, animators, mobile app developers and futurists to carve a creative space for the next evolution of digital content for the steelpan.

Just in time for Carnival 2017, a suite of brand new steelpan-themed mobile applications (pan apps) is being launched on the company’s official digital platform: games.lizmannette.com. As a pan lover deeply invested in the continuation of the global steelpan legacy, she realised that to connect the steelpan and its historical icons with Caribbean millennials and young children, conversations surrounding steelpan had to be communicated in a way easily understood by the digital and information generation.

“I see two- and three-year-old kids swiping and using cell phones and tablet computers with ease,” said Mannette in a Skype interview from New York City recently. “I look at my young nieces and nephews and I think, how do I tell them about our Mannette family legacy in a way that they will engage and treasure? We need to create experiences to show the digital generation of Trinbagonian and Caribbean people their cultural heritage in a language they understand and via the channels they readily embrace,” she said.
