CSISteelBand Click below for the CS Steel Band Trust Facebook page CSISteelBand (aka Caribbean Steel International) located in the West of London is a UK based steelband. The CSI family is made up of people of all ages and all levels of ability, performing all over UK and Europe CSISteelBand On Instagram Brent Holder, World Champion Soloist, formed the Caribbean Steel International steelband in 2004, after obtaining invaluable experience from working with some of the top steel bands in the UK, Trinidad and Japan with three members owing to the demand for small gigging bands. After ensuring that their small steel band was well established on the gigging circuit, CSI founding members decided to start a community group which would involve their local communities in the steel pan art form. The Caribbean Steel International Community Group was established in November 2007 in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, London. With their classes aimed at giving the public the opportunity of learning about, and how to play the steel pan instrument.

There is also the great opportunity to enter steel pan competitions like the BAS Pan Explosion and National Panorama competitions. CSI also visits organisations, schools and institutions to conduct workshops for those groups who are unable to attend their weekly sessions.

Panorama arrangements are available, musically scored by Crystal Holder and in midi format for those living abroad or too far away in the UK to attend regular practice sessions. This enables them to learn the 10 minute tune and join CSI a week or two before the National Panorama competition allowing more players from around the world to experience the UK Panorama with CSI. In just over a year, CSI has established a Community Group, acquired a rehearsal space (pan yard) based at the Ravenscourt Theatre School in Hammersmith, London and run three weekly practice sessions for children and adults which are fully attended and for which there is a waiting list. They have become a Registered Charity and also attracted over £37k lottery funding through winning a public vote. CSI has also been victorious at the 2008 British Association of Steelbands/Children and Parents Carnival Association’s Junior Panorama competition, capturing the coveted title in [...]
