Ewabo Caribbean Trio
7:00 pm
Pitt Titusville, Henne Auditorium
Announced by:
Director's Office on behalf of Year of Pitt Global

With a particular emphasis on the "Steeldrum," better known as “Pan” to the people of its native land (Trinidad & Tobago), Ewabo is recognized as one of the preeminent Caribbean calypso bands in the mid-Atlantic region. Ewabo’s skill and dedication to indigenous island music and the playing of Pan Drums (the predominant art form in the Caribbean) has propelled the trio to prominence in the mainstream of contemporary world music. With the benefit of a variety of backgrounds in the arts, the musicians of Ewabo utilize their experiences to entertain, astound and educate audiences on the potpourri of Caribbean culture. The success of Ewabo is attributable to a strong belief shared by band members whose motto, “ONE LOVE," is embodied in their vast array of exceptional musical arrangements of traditional and contemporary calypso, reggae and Pan Drum music.
