Notting Hill Carnival roundup

Metronomes came second at Panorama, the UK National Steelband Competition performing So Long by Nadia Baston, arranged by Leroy Clarke. The competition was won by Mangrove, with Ebony coming third.

More than 100 players from Metronomes took part in Panorama, and we had 25 plus players on the road for both Carnival Monday and Sunday. Thousand of people from the Metronomes community in North Kensington came along to cheer us on. It was a great Carnival!

About Metronomes

Metronomes is an award-winning carnival arts organisation based in Ladbroke Grove, West London.

We teach and perform steelpan music, promote Caribbean heritage, and run projects to benefit our local community.

Listen to our music!

This is Carnival Tabanca, our 2014 Panorama tune. We’re testing putting music on the site over the next few weeks. For now, we’ve put a track on each page, and the five tunes we are using can be found on Soundcloud account.

Our three-year development plan

We have published All our futures, our three-year plan to increase our community and arts projects.

We’ve just rebuilt this site so there may be one or two issues. Send us an email if you spot a problem.
