Pan Alive Steelband Competition 2019 - Toronto, Canada

August 2

Pan Alive: Indulge in the sweet sounds of the steel pan at the Pan Alive steel pan competition. Did you know that the steel pan is the only acoustic instrument invented in the 20th century? Trinidad is its original home, but the instrument can be found all across the Caribbean and almost anywhere Caribbean people live. Pan Alive brings together the best steel pan bands, all going for the title of Best Band.


The Toronto Caribbean Carnival Festival and The Ontario Steel Band association present Pan Alive, Canada's premiere Steel Pan competition happening during Carnival weekend. On August 2nd, some of North America's best Steel Pan orchestras will compete for the title of Best Steel Band.

Throughout the night the audience will be treated to some of the best live Caribbean flavoured percussion and steel drumming. The panel of judges will judge performance on arrangement, group performance, the tone and general application of rhythm. Of course, the audience will base our favourites on how hard we are pushed to dance.
