Meet Chantal Esdelle - Trinidad & Tobago

Celebration of Women and the Steelpan Art Form

Chantal Esdelle

Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Although she is a scholar, an intellect and a deep thinker with many awards she remains humble. Indeed, it is her deep roots, knowledge of self and conscious awareness of who we are as a people amongst her vast accomplishments - that make her so special. She is a Trinidad and Tobago treasure.

In an exclusive interview with When Steel Talks - panist, ethnomusicologist, musician composer, arranger and educator Chantal Esdelle gives us an honest glimpse into who she is - her observations and concerns along with her love and unrestrained passion for the culture, history, steelpan instrument, its music, the art form and more.
