The steelband, incredible as it may look and sound, can produce music which is equal to that of any other orchestra. The instruments, which represent conventional ones, are made from empty oil drums. The tops are sunken and burnt, then notes are grooved with the skill of a tuner to various sizes and tuned to a musical range. The Exponians of the Steel Orchestra were formed in March of 1967 by the Trinidad Government in order to represent the country at Expo '67, happening in Montréal at the time. The Exponians were such a big hit over at the fair that they were asked to come back for a return engagement at Man and His World in May of 1968. They ended-up embarking on a cross-Canada tour sponsored by Air Canada and the West Indian Celebrity Group of Toronto.
