DeHaske Music Box Series for variable wind quartet (woodwinds and brass) plus percussion (ad lib) – Grade 3

The Banana Boat Song (“Day-O”) is based on a Jamaican folksong. At the end of the 1950s, Harry Belafonte had a major hit with it and it has since become a true classic. Roland Kernen has produced this swinging arrangement in an instrumentation that is suitable for many combinations of wind or brass instruments with ad-lib percussion.
