Biden Steel Pan

On May 28, US Vice President Joe Biden “applauded the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force which serenaded him and his family with the sweet sound of the steel pan upon his arrival in Trinidad last night.” (StabroekNews.com). Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar presented a steel pan to the Vice President that was made at Gill’s Pan Shop in Curepe. In 2009, President Obama was presented with a tenor pan made by Panland, based in Laventille. He also purchased two mini pans for his daughters.
