Skeleton Dance

A day late for Halloween, barely in time for Día de Muertos. A composition for classic fingerstyle banjo and piano by Norton Greenop, circa 1900.

This makes me want to become a silent film actor just to create a short Día de los Muertos-themed comedy scored by this composition! Since I don't know how to do any of that, I will just settle for it making me feel really happy. Love the last bit--very delightful to listen to.

I love it! And the video is so spooky when the lights come up and there are BANJOS EVERYWHERE.

This was perfect timing for Day Of The Dead. This year we downloaded printable sugar skull masks.
