Harry Belafonte sings “Day-O” for a super excited audience.

My dad used to sing this in the shower. I miss that.

Harry Belafonte is almost one hundred years old. He brought Caribbean music to an international audience. His most famous single, “Banana Boat Song,” more commonly known as “Day-O,” is a beloved song of many. In this clip, Belafonte leads the audience in the call and response pattern of the Jamaican work song. Acting as their director, the audience enjoys being taught by Belafonte just how to sing “Day-O.”
