Mango Groove Steel Band
The Flavor of the Caribbean!
Mango Groove is a six member steel band consisting
of five sets of pans, - lead pan, alto pans, guitar pans,
cello pans, and bass pans, - a conventional drum kit
and various auxiliary percussion. They play a variety of
dance music - Calypso, Reggae, Jazz, Motown, and
more - all with a Caribbean flavor that only the uplifting
rhythmic sounds of a steel band can create. Their
performances include Afro-Caribbean drumming and
Mango Groove's sound consists of rich dulcet ones
over a complexity of soft rhythms...a beauiful and tightly
arranged selection of traditional and popular tunes."
