 The hills are alive with the sound of music August 7, 2012 By Ian  Franklin See All My Reviews "This is a fabulous 1999 recording of music by Desperadoes Steel Orchestra eminating from the National Instrument of Trinidad and Tobago. Desperadoes hails from the hills of Laventille, and is one of the top Steel Orchestras that have also performed classics such as, "The Marriage ofFigaro" "Palaestra"
"The Merry Wives of Windsor" "The William Tell Overture"
"The 1812 Overture" and many others. The packaging of this CD is different from the ones that we of Desperadoes have.

Sincerely,
Ian Franklin"
