Florida Folksong - Tambo Eating Tamarind

Alternate Title: Tambo Eatin Tamarind

Bahamian Americans British Americans vocals Ethnography Music Conch songs Riviera, Florida Palm Beach County

A Conch folksong about a bird, nicknamed "Tambo," that was frequently seen eating Tamarind fruit. The singer is the wife of Wilbur Roberts. The term "Conch," while now more widely used to refer to a native of Key West, Florida, originally referred to British settlers of the Bahama Islands who later emigrated to South Florida. The unique accent of the Conchs--a mixture of British and Bahamian dialects--interested the WPA fieldworkers as much as the songs and stories related by the Conchs. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
