Etienne Charles [1]

From the excellent photoblog, Caribbean Free Photo [2], comes this portrait, entitled “Steel and Brass.”

22-year old trumpeter Etienne Charles, photographed at the Phase II Pan Groove panyard, home base of one of Trinidad & Tobago’s most celebrated [3] steel [4] orchestras. “This place is my home,” says Etienne, “For me this was a place of dreams. This is where I learnt what music was all about.”
