The Renegades Steel Orchestra

The Renegades Steel OrchestraFrom Trinidad & Tobago

The greatest and most successful steel band in the world!

The Renegades clanged, bashed and rattled their way into exuberant life towards the end of World War II and have been bringing the unique rhythms of Trinidad and Tobago to the world ever since. Using instruments constructed from 55-gallon oil drums, this ensemble of outstanding musicians has lifted the art of the steelpan to stratospheric heights. Tremendously energetic live, the irresistible island-flavoured calypso rhythms of the sixteen-piece Renegades Steel Orchestra will have everyone on their feet!
