Taste of Bahamian Culture | Bahamas Photographer

November 24, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

There are so so so many parts of the Bahamian culture from the food to the music to the language. This list is a very small part of the culture offered in the islands of The Bahamas and in no particular order.

1. Junkanoo in 'da mornin', in ya' belly, in da' Valley. Coincidentally listed at number one on the list, and definitely one of the biggest parts of The Bahamian culture that happens only a few times a year. I am often lucky enough to see small showcases of Junkanoo as I capture photographs at Bahamas destination weddings and events. woman dressed in junkanoo costumeBahamas Junkanoo RushWoman dancing in Junkanoo costume in The Bahamas man participating in junkanooJunkanoo rush at CARIFTA Bahamas 2013Man wearing big bow-tie and blowing whistle at Junkanoo man blowing a conch shell at a junkanoo rushJunkanoo Rush at CARIFTA BahamasMan blowing conch shell at Junkanoo

2. The Royal Bahamas Police Force Band creates a sound that leaves the crowd in appreciation, and Bahamians with a sense of pride.

3. Down Town Nassau is one of the To-Go places in Nassau, Bahamas. From cruise ship visitors docking at the central part of Down Town to visitors vacationing in one of the local resorts, everyone must visit the Straw Market to take a piece of the Bahamas home with them.

4. Playing with Fire Dancers and Action Jackson Limbo King all like to play with fire at destination group events. Their job is to grab the crowd's attention; my job is to get close enough to grab a photo woman doing a fire dance in the BahamasFire Dancerwoman fire dancing in the Bahamas plates of fire on man's headAction Jackson Limbo Kingaction jackson putting fire on man's head in The Bahamas action jackson limbos under the fireAction Jackson Limbo KingLimbo under fire
