Faces Around the Bay: Winston Bastom

WintonBastom.jpgWinston Bastom stands at the corner of O’Farrell and Mason in San Francisco, usually on Friday nights, playing the steel drum. The drum and Bastom are from Trinidad. The beautiful bell like sounds of the drum fill the block with familiar melodies, and people occasionally drop coins/dollars in his case. Bastom has been in this country for 13 years!
