Boomkat Product Review:
Hard-to-resist compilation of Bajan bangers from waaaay back in the day. “Jamaica got Mento, Trinidad got Calypso, the Bahamas got Goombay!”.
“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!”
