By PlayMas.Today — 3 months agoAfter centuries of practice, today’s cultural extravaganzas have become the most entertaining street carnivals of not only The Bahamas but also the world at large.
With the costumes, dance, and music inspired by a different theme each time, preparations for the Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and summertime Junkanoo literally take months and bring together men and women from all different walks of life.
Junkanoo evolved from the days of slavery. Loyalists who migrated to The Bahamas in the late 18th Century brought their African slaves with them. The slaves were given three days off during the Christmas season, which they used to celebrate by singing and dancing in colorful masks, travelling from house to house, often on stilts. Junkanoo nearly vanished after slavery was
abolished, butthe revival of the festival in The Bahamas now provides entertainment for many thousands.
