De Fosto - Calysonian and Prolific Composer for the Steelpan

A composer, music arranger and calypsonian, De Fosto is remembered as “one of the all-time great” composers of steelpan music.

During his illustrious music career spanning some forty (40) years, Scarborough has composed many a tune inspired for the pan including “In D Minor”, “Latin On De Court”, “D Greatest Invention”, “Puncinelly” .

Not only did he compose for the steelpan but his music was easily adapted for the steelbands. These include “Four Lara Four” which gave Renegades it seventh National title. Then too there were “Pan Lamentation”, “Firestorm”, “Pandora” and “War” to name a few.

In fact, steelbands favoured his compositions with his selections often played many times at Panorama competitions.
