Distant Mix CultureMix Carnival – Percussion Challenge

Welcome to the Distant Mix Challenge a CultureMix Virtual Carnival project for 2020.

We want to see your creative side, get your family and household together and your camera phones ready. You can take part in our Carnival Parade and join RASPO for the Distant Mix Challenge.

We’ve prepared tutorials so you can learn the dance steps, make and play your own percussion instrument, sing along with the band, and dress up in your finest Carnival outfit. Use the RASPO + guests video as the backing track for your own performance.

We will select all the best videos to create a winners film collage showcase. Send your videos of you dancing, singing, playing percussion along to our Trinidadian calypso Pan in A Minor with Reading All Steel Percussion Orchestra (RASPO) and our musical guests.

Your videos must last for at least a minute and include the ‘Steel Pan’ choruses. Please film in landscape mode although we will accept portrait if this is all you can do.

Send your videos to us by email to, or upload larger files via wetransfer. You can also send by WhatsApp to 07973 251919. Make sure your film title includes your household name followed by DMII. We look forward to your videos.
