Yellow Bird

This is my instrumental cover of “Yellow Bird”. Originally known as “Choucoune”, it is is a 19th-century Haitian song composed by Michel Mauléart Monton with lyrics from a poem by Oswald Durand. It was rewritten with English lyrics in the 20th century as “Yellow Bird”. Exotica musician Arthur Lyman made the song a hit in 1961. The Ventures included a cover on their 1961 album “Colorful Ventures”.
