"Bird Boy" by Nana Vasconcelos 
"Bird Boy" by Nana Vasconcelos

YouTube Sample

Arranged for Steel Band by Eugene Novotney

Bird Boy was composed by the Brazilian percussionist, Nana Vasconcelos, and was recorded by his band, The Bush Dancers, on his 1989 album entitled, Rain Dance. Bird Boy is a beautiful and unique Afro-Brazilian reggae tune. The lyrical verse uses traditional Brazilian bird-calls for its inspiration, while the chorus is based on unison power-chords punctuated by drum & percussion fills. This arrangement also features a contrasting bridge and vamp, which serves as an open solo section which can be repeated between multiple soloists. The basic chord structure and slow-groove tempo of this tune makes it very accessible to bands of every size and every level of expertise, and the open nature of this arrangement provides a lot of opportunity for your rhythm section and your steelpan soloists to shine.
