Harry Belafonte - Day-O (rabid re-drum)

Day-O (the Banana Boat Song) originated in Jamaica in 1952 and was later popularized by Harry Bellafonte in 1956 on his album entitled Calypso. The calypso (also referred to as mento, or Jamaican folk music) song was later re-popularized in the late 80's when it was featured in the classic movie Beetlejuice.

Marking 60 years since Harry Belafonte made the song mainstream, 2016 also marks an upbeat remix/re-drum version of this classic, geared towards dancing in the modern club. Day-O (the rabid re-drum) features a house beat over the original calypso tune. With the 4 on the floor beat, this re-drum will liven up any occasion.

The re-drum is available for download and it features both a regular remixed version and an extended version for the DJ's. There is also a video available to watch right here and at

Thanks for the support and enjoy the music!!
