From time to time my father’s old partners would check him, he would always give me stories about their history, especially if they both had a history of being involved in music. I was encouraged to take the opportunity to do an impromptu “interview” with Khlaick Hewitt, a panologist who has been involved in pan for over 40 years. He had a lot of insights to share and I was glad that I took the opportunity to have this talk with him. It was a lengthy talk so I edited out my questions. This is more of a “OneTalks” type scenario rather than a conversation but the content is being presented at this point (rather than after carnival 2013) to ignite conversation online about the present state of Steelpan in Trinidad & Tobago.
