Title: Dazzling Music, Dazzling Shirts
Author: Unknown
Abstract: This is a photograph of the Evening News newspaper from the National Archives. It features, Lieutenant N. Griffith, conducting TASPO (Trinidad All Steel Percussion Orchestra) during their performance at the South Bank Exhibition of the Festival of Britain. Londoners heard a steelband for the first time and thought the music was "sweet and liquid" and the boys' shirts, like the music, were considered "simply dazzling".
