Kino Portrait Aruba


Hi, I'm Kino and welcome to my Website.

I was born in Aruba, but living in Holland for a longtime.

As a boy I started playing steelpan with the Esso Ohio Band carrying a little boom (dudup ) and have developed my skills by playing, making and tuning ever since. As a kid it was impossible to carry the big steeldrum. So I started making my own steeldrums made out of little waterbuckets and formed my own marching (Road side) steelband playing on small pans once more, made of little waterbuckets and carbage bins.

During the process of making and tuning I have developed my own tuning techniques, but I also master all the others. As always I continue to offer the best in service and quality.

You are welcome to have a look at the following pictures and videos of the making process.
