Mr.Pong and his Steelpan! We present a unique Montreal Local artist featuring HipHop, Reggae and this EPIC POKEMON THEME COVER!
This music Monday we present Mr.Pong, an artist that is bringing in vibes from Hip-Hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Calypso, Soca, Jazz, and RnB, while using instruments from around the world such as the Steelpan to create a beautiful sound that is like something I’ve never heard before. My favourite part of artists and their art is seeing what and how they utilize to create their piece. This is something I am excited to write about because I can’t wait to see what Mr. Pong’s future has in store. He is a Steelpan artist from Montreal and we at Best Kept are happy to be featuring him on our Music Mondays!
“I have been playing the Steelpan since the age of 9, usually with a band, but I started as a Steelpan soloist out of desperation…I decided I’d take a chance and bring my Steelpan into the metros to make some money. The reception was like nothing I could have expected and I’m so happy that I took the risk. I haven’t looked back since.” – Mr. Pöng.
the creativity and unique sounds are what Mr. Pong wants his audience to focus on. He has taken his passion and created something that is all his. You are able to see all this in his Steelpan re-creation of Robin Thicke’s “Lost Without U”.
