Welcome to Bahamas

Junkanoo is without a doubt the most popular style of music you'll hear in the Bahamas, because it's been around for hundreds of years and is a vital part of the heritage of the islands. Some say the word derives from the name of a freed slave, John Canoe, but others insist that it comes from the word "junk" — the discarded materials and cans used to create instruments for the first Junkanoo celebrations in the 18th century.

It's ‘Better in the Bahamas' and Nassau-Paradise Island will make a believer of you!
