National Geographic (YouTube Channel), “Steel Drums”


The Video

National Geographic takes on an educational trip to Trinidad and Tobago to learn about arguably their most famous export, the steel drum. The video is short but sweet and would be a good introduction to a class centred on music, culture or travel.
