Movers n’ Shakers

Story-book Entertainment Inc. aims to connect diverse artist, performers, storytellers far and wide! Meet some of the talented individuals who are building and creating in the Caribbean.
Our Caribbean Collaborators come from all parts of the archipelago.

The Bahamas, rich in Junkanoo culture and recently Carnival fever; Trinidad and Tobago and St. Lucia, both countries with heavy carnival festivals as well as Steel Pan music. As well as Jamaica and Barbados, both steeped with reggae and Dance Hall rhythms.
Steel Pan Drums
Junkanoo, which occurs on Boxing Day (December 26) and New Year’s Day, is a very integral and celebratory part of the Bahamian culture.

Thousands parade down Bay Street, Nassau’s busiest and most tourist-centric location, like a wild ocean of colourful costumes, with goat-skin, cowbells and brass horns rhythms that reverberate in the bottom of the bellies and souls of those standing in the crowd.

Steel-pans is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago. The musicians are known as pannists. Even though it originated in Trinidad, steel-pans are played vastly throughout the Caribbean.
