To expose individuals to the carnival arts and to the musical traditions of the Caribbean, particularly, the steel pan.
To work with disadvantaged groups within the community, particularly groups in danger of social exclusion.
To forge links with the local community in partnership, which would work towards introducing new artists to the steel band and carnival art forms.
Nostalgia Steelband is the first and only traditional 'pan-around-neck band in the UK. We are an
all inclusive, not-for-profit band with strong links to the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and The Americas, who perform in the UK and abroad. As well as being a traditional steelband, we also play the conventional way ('pans on stands').
As a band immersed in steelpan history we fulfill entertainment needs with a vast rendition of tunes, from calypso to popular music combined with caribbean rhythms. Every year we play steelpan on the streets of London's Notting Hill Carnival. We are the perfect option of entertainment for all types of events including weddings, festivals, birthday parties, school events, sporting events, fairs and exhibitions. Whether your event requires a casual or formal approach, our players will wear the attire to suit the occasion.
