Video Title:
Bahamian Junkanoo Parade [Live at Smithsonian Folklife Festival 1994]
Description:
For many Bahamians, the soul of Junkanoo resides in its percussive rhythms. Here, master drummer John Chipman describes the art of Junkanoo drumming and drum-making. These scenes were filmed during the opening procession at the 1994 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. 'Bahamian Rake-n-Scrape' is available on CD and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/ophie-and-da-websites/da-river-round-dance/caribbean-world/track/smithsonian Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/2j2ZPHL0CRlpmCuYngpvi5?si=DPKPQLKKRvKEMwp92FiDoQ Rake-n-scrape is the deep sound of Bahamian goombay musical tradition, a marker of Bahamian national identity, and a source of joy and community celebration. On 'Bahamian Rake-n-Scrape,' two groups from Cat Island—Ophie & Da Websites and Bo Hog & Da Rooters—take the basic sonorous ingredients of accordion, scraped saw, and goatskin drum to interpret some of the most popular rake-n-scrape melodies in circulation today.
