…”Mama, look ah boo boo dey.”
Harry Belafonte and Nat King Cole perform a classic calypso “Mama Look A Boo Boo”, which was written in 1956 by Lord Melody (Fitzroy Alexander).
Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I was also able to find the same song done on the steelpan… It was performed by a University student from California named Ziba Zehdar, as part of her university coursework or something.
What made me smile was that she’s so good, that the MC introducing her actually has to announce to the audience that – contrary to the thoughts and questions of many – that he “didn’t hire her to play the steelpan”, and that she was a matriculated student at the school!
I was just in the mood for some old school kaiso. I hope you do enjoy! It always makes me happy and proud to see a facet of my culture being appreciated by other inhabitants of the big blue marble! 😀
Peace and Rice,
