Popular Music in the Bahamas

Bahamas

  1. Soca. Soca is a form of dance music which originated from many calypso music. It originally combined the melodic lilting sound of calypso with insistent percussion (which is often electronic in recent music) and local chutney music.
  2. Junkanoo. Junkanoo is percussion music made famous by Alphonso 'Blind Blake' Higgs, who played to tourists arriving at Nassau International Airport for several years.
  3. Rake and Scrape. Rake and scrape music comes from the musical traditions of the Turks and Cone Islands, and is characterized by the use of a saw as the primary instrument.
