Cat Island Rake and Scrape

Cat Island Rake and Scrape

The soundtrack for your getaway to Cat Island will be percussion-rich Rake and Scrape. This traditional Bahamian music is created with homemade instruments: a screwdriver scraping across the jagged edge of a workman’s saw, a washtub raked with a spiny brush, and the ever-present goatskin drum. Rooms are scarce in Cat Island during the festival, which takes place in the first weekend of June; book far advance for a weekend of food, spirits and Bahamian music.
