E Legado di Steelband na Aruba: Un Relato y Eco di un Gran Epoca

Den e era magico di añanan ’40 di siglo pasa, e notanan emocionante di e steelpan a yega Aruba, marcando e inicio di un revolucion musical. Bao guia di maestro Trinitario Leonard Turner, “The Invaders” a surgi como e pioneronan di e revolucion musical aki, creando melodianan yena di encanto for di drumnan di petroleo di e Refineria Lago.

Imagina e scenario: hobennan inspira pa e ritmonan cu tabata vibra for di cayanan di Trinidad a bini hunto bao liderazgo di Turner na 1945. Uzando nan habilidadnan nobo, nan a transforma drumnan di petroleo cu a wordo benta afo, den instrumentonan musical maraviyoso, creando un fusion entre ritmonan Caribense cu samba, rumba y melodianan contemporaneo.

Ya na 1948, Turner oficialmente a bay den historia cu su creacion musical, "The Invaders". Nan a bira e prome Steelband profesional riba e isla. Na 1951, Vincent Bacchus, un otro pilar di e Invaders original na Trinidad, a uni forsa ku Turner, amplificando e harmonia ku tabata resona for di nan creacionnan di hero. Hunto, nan a duna bida na "The All Stars Steel Band".

Mientras cu tempo tabata avansa, Aruba a presencia e aparicion di otro maestronan di steelpan. Paul Connor a crea "Caribbean Stars", mientrastanto Dennis Jones a crea su steelband unico. Edgar Connor, un di e hobennan mas ku tabata domina e steelpan di un forma impresionante, a forma su banda na 1952, creando e caminda pa e creacion di steelbands rond di henter Aruba, cada un cu nan ritmo y estilo caracteristico.

E eco di e legado musical ta wordo nota te cu awe, entre otro a traves di Fundacion Panman Aruba, lidera pa Sr. Lee Connor, e actual lider di Aruba Invaders. E tradicion ta continua mientras Sr. Connor, hunto cu su rumannan, ta traha duro pa traspasa nan conocemento y habilidadnan na e generacionnan mas hoben.
