Events

 

SEPTA Sounds Performances

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10TH FROM 12PM TO 1PM

Philly T&T Rhythm Makers

Stemming from the islands of Trinidad and Tobago’s rich musical culture the rhythm section or ‘engine room,’ as it is commonly referred to, is a group of percussion instruments that traditionally accompanied the steelpans, providing the pulse and rhythmic drive for the entire band. The sound of the rhythm section is one which when heard evokes feelings of festivity and celebrations as it fills the air with the clangs of iron and metal, an abrasive symphony of energy.
