Big Jones & His Kawina Band - Bosoe Bana

The songs on this dutch Philips EP are from the soundtrack of the film/documentary "Suriname" done by Herman van der Horst released in 1960 in the Netherlands.
H.van der Horst won the Golden Bear for the best documentary.

Four songs by Big Jones & his Kawina Band where among the soundtrack of this documentary.
Todays songs is called "Bosoe Bana" which is a bunch of bananas and is about a man who is trying to sell these bananas

The song is from the late 50's (probably 1959) and was a huge hit back in Suriname. I remember during my childhood days (during the late 60's) that the song was still frequently played on local radio stations.
