about

BJR002 - GOOMBAY! Music from the Bahamas 1951-59 (EN)

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. This music is finally available again on vinyl after 60 years!

BJR002 - GOOMBAY! Music from the Bahamas 1951-59 (F)

Proche de la Floride, le Goombay des Bahamas est un succulent hybride entre rhythm and blues, calypso trinidadien et mento jamaïcain, mais reste un style à part.
Avec des compositeurs et interprètes anglophones de classe internationale comme Blind Blake Higgs, George Symonette ou Charlie Adamson, le son de Nassau a connu un âge d’or au charme unique, chargé de rêves tropicaux.
