A collection of eleven tracks by pan-music artists, the "Desperadoes Steel Orchestra", includes Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", Joseph Kosma's "Autumn Leaves" and more. The Desperadoes came into being in the early 1940s, and over the years through its various states and sponsors, brought tremendous pride to Trinidad & Tobago and music to the world. Laventille is the epicenter of the Steelpan, indigenous national musical instrument of Trinidad & Tobago. From foot to summit, its sound emanates and resonates throughout the land. Today, there is a determined resolve to initiate a resurgence of Laventille, to restore its pride and performance.
The work starts immediately and is spearheaded by the return of Desperadoes to the top of the Hill and sharing its vast repertoire with the world.
