Re: CAUTION: Relevancy Alert
Thanks for the info Larry. I'm now anxiously awaiting the SECOND great Calypso musical...
Is "Chocoune" Haitian for "Yellow Bird" ?
The Tarriers tune is from the eminently forgettable 1957 film Calypso Heat Wave . It was billed as "The Screen's First Great Calypso Musical" [there were others?]. Even better, it was from the producers of Rock Around The Clock! Besides Banana Boat Song , the Tarriers also perform the traditional Haitian folk song Chocoune .
