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.Difficulty: Easy (great for high school and college steel bands)Instrumentation: tenor/double tenor/double seconds/cello/bass/drum set/percussion
