Bahamas culture

More than estimated 340’000 live in The Bahamas. Over 80% of Bahamians live within an urban area mainly on the main island of New Providence and in Grand Bahama. The legacy of slavery in the Caribbean left a majority population of blacks which make up 85%, with whites the remaining 15%.

The Bahamas is a very religious country. It has been suggested that the country has one of the highest number of churches per capita in the world.

The most favorite music for the Bahamians is the Junkanoo music, but Junkanoo is much more than music.Bahamian music also incorporates other Caribbean forms such as Calypso, Trinidadian Soca and Jamaican Reggae, as well as American-inspired Rap and Hip Hop.
