Music from the Bahamas

From Wikipedia:
The music of the Bahamas is associated primarily with junkanoo, a celebration which occurs on Boxing Day and again on New Year's DayParades and other celebrations mark the ceremony. Groups like The Baha MenRonnie Butler and Kirkland Bodie have gained massive popularity in Japan, the United States and elsewhere.
There's also a docu-musical called Music of the Bahamas that looks like it may be interesting. Several clips from a 2002 production of the show can be seen on the Shakespeare In Paradise YouTube channel.
