Wayne Stoute & Tropical Pan3

Tropical Pan3 consists of three pans. One playing the melody, one playing the chords and the “dudup” which has two notes. This special pan was used in the early days of the steel band to play a rhythmic pattern in the low range. It can be compared to the “surdo” in Brazilian samba or the large “dhol” in North Indian bhangara music. It was eventually replaced in the early 1950s when true bass pans were developed.
Tropical Pan3 is a bit reminiscent of the early days of the steel bands using congas and various percussion instruments as opposed to a modern drum set. For concerts the group will consist of three of the top pan players in Montreal, Wayne Stoute on“dudup” and percussion and drummer-percussionist Evans Baptiste on congas and timbales.

Avec ses rythmes traditionnels trinidadiens, Tropical Pan 3 rappelle l’esprit original des premiers « steel bands ». A la tête du groupe, Wayne Stoute, accompagné d’un percussionniste et de trois joueurs du typique « steel drum », frappe les percussions et impose le « dudup », instrument qui s’apparente au surdo brésilien ou au dhol indien.
