“Yellow Bird” is a 19th century Haitian song composed as “Choucoune”  by Michel Mauléart Monton. It became known as “Yellow Bird” in the 1950s when it received English lyrics. However, its most popular recording was instrumental, by the Arthur Lymon Group. This group, led by a Vibes/Marimba player, took the song to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961.
