Banana Boat Song • Tingalayo
Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade: 2.5

The traditional tunes Banana Boat Song and Tingalayo explore not only syncopation and hooked bowings, but students also get to play the role of auxiliary percussion! Tapping, col legno, and stomping all combine to fill your audience’s imagination with warm breezes and gently rolling waves, while being immersed in the calypso style. Written by a string educator, this will work well with any developing ensemble! (2:30)
