Programme Notes / Performance Details :

The term “engine room” refers to the percussion section of a traditional steel band, which is made up of non-pitched instruments. The engine room plays a crucial accompaniment role in Calypso and Soca, the traditional folk music of Trinidad and Tobago. The composer develops motives out of the rhythmic patterns that are typically used in the engine room, as well as other patterns found within the context of Caribbean music.
