Just off the Florida coast, Bahamian Goombay music is a succulent hybrid, somewhere between rhythm and blues, Trinidadian calypso and Jamaican mento, yet it comes from the Bahamas, where it lives on as a separate style. The presence of world-class composers and performers Blind Blake Higgs, George
Symonette or Charlie Adamson made the sounds of Nassau a Golden Age, filled with unique charm and tropical dreams. A perfect following to the Blind Blake & His Royal Victoria Hotel Calypsos compilation Bongo Joe had released on the Moi J'Connais label a couple of years ago!
