Sharon B “Pan Woman” and Tropix

Sharon B, also known as Pan Woman, was born and raised on the island of Trinidad & Tobago. At age 13, she fell in love with the steel drums and has been playing ever since.

In 1994, Sharon toured the U.S. with Our Boys Steel Orchestra. Due to the demand for the steel drums in the Bay Area, she decided to stay and play!

For the 2018 Jerk Cook Off, she will be joined by Tropix, bringing a blend of soca, reggae, and world music.
