“Where in the world can you go and have the opportunities you have here in the United States?” asks musician Wilton Dubois. From Trinidad, a country smaller than Delaware, Wilton came here looking for a better life. Dubois later played steel drums with Trinidad Tripoli, a band brought to the states by Liberace. The band opened for Liberace, played on their own under contract with Warner Brothers, and once played on The Ed Sullivan Show. Dubios is now passionate about teaching children to make and play steel drums. He enjoys helping kids find direction in life, especially kids from single parent homes. He founded Resounding Steel with the help of Durham’s Haytai Heritage Club. Part of the band’s proceeds went to help member families with groceries and rent. Dubois is driven by his passions and notes, “You don’t get this time again. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.” His goal is to get his program into the schools. Learn more at www.resoundingsteel.org.
