Popular Calypso arrangement simple enough for Middle School ensembles, fun enough for university level! Add more solos and percussion breaks if you wish. Flexible instrumentation allows for additional players to double misc percussion or add whatever else may be available to build the groove and ensemble sound. Add a deep cowbell on 1 & 3, if a player is available, to help hold the time together.
