Musician Ian Dobson

Musician & World Music Guide


“Ian Dobson’s Pan Leggo is a fun and energetic band that can’t help but make you happy!”
     -Robert Smith, National Public Radio

In the Caribbean, “pan leggo” means “steel drum party.” And a captivating steel drum party is precisely what Ian Dobson delivers at assemblies as he sings, dances, juggles, and performs on steel drums and other percussion instruments.

Students delve into percussion playing and singing and dancing, Spanish and Caribbean language, and see at first hand amazing examples of recycling, repurposing, and resourcefullness.

Ian’s goal is to share his passion for music, travel, culture, and language, and to instill in students, through music, an abiding desire to explore cultures different from their own.
